A beautiful, impressive concert hall with comfortable seating, easily accessed by public transport. Loved being able to choose your own seats online and see the view from your chosen seat online when you book tickets.

I was lucky enough to get to visit this place as an artist with my chamber orchestra while on tour, participating in the 2016 Prodigy Collective. The hall was beautiful and the backstage was cool but a little confusing to get around in! The visitor part of the center is beautiful, large and clean. They have great places to eat... More

When we visit I buy pre-paid parking and use the car park underneath the venue. Means we can get into the theatre without getting wet in the event of rain. I like to have a meal before the show but the lines can be very, very, very long.

I was a female travelling solo and went to see "We will rock you" on its closing night. Transport to and from the centre is terrific. Bus and train available. Food and drinks as you would expect, nice but pricey. I booked online and picked up my ticket on arrival. Victoria bridge is right next door as is the big... More

Check what is on during your stay, even if the show does not appeal to your tastes. All shows I have seen are professional with great sound and lighting. You will definitely walk away feeling better after any performance.

I am a regualar visiter here due to the fact that is offers amazing shows through out the year and it is a cultural space that has many things that happen there that are free too for families. Its great to catch up for coffee or drink and grab a bite before the show.

We saw 'We Will Rock You' at the lyric theatre yesterday. Being a matinee it was quiet but there was still an abundance of super friendly staff to point us to where we had to go. The kids felt very special with the amount of staff assisting us!! Great experience.
