This Hall is well worth visiting as a venue for concerts. The staff are welcoming, the seating and layout are good, and the acoustics are excellent. One unusual feature we experienced was the Programmes - so often full of adverts in other venues, but here...More

Very comfortable. Was able to get a drink before the concert, my seat was comfortable and there was plenty of leg room, for which I am always grateful. The volunteer staff were helpful and efficient. A really enjoyable evening.

We went to watch beauty and the beast with the live orchestra, couldn’t fault it, but drinks are expensive, I would advise to take your own if your going to watch a show, only fault is to many stairs and not enough lifts

If you drive use the NCP car park opposite. At the box office in the hall get your car park ticket stamped and the charge last week was £5.00
