The presentations have always been first class. The theatre is always a sellout but there are no bad seats in the theatre. The stage and sound effects are very professional .

“Always enjoy the Lecture on Being Canadian”

Each year for the past many, I have attended the brilliant and entertaining Lecture on Being Canadian. It is presented each November and the participants are engaging and stimulating. The facility is comfortable and the staff is helpful.

“Great for theatre or live entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Have been here a number of times, last visit was to see comedian Ron James. Located close to downtown Guelph it is an easy walk to local restaurants for dinner before the show. Public parking is located just across the street. The ushers have always been kind and friendly, the seats are comfortable and we have always had good seats with full view of the stage. I have never hesitated to purchase tickets for a show here.

“Guelph's Wonderful Concert Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Despite opposition from sports fans and many local politicians, this wonderful facility was finally built with the financial assistance of many dedicated volunteers. Contrary to the opinions of its detractors, it is full almost every night, with entertainment ranging from Guelph's own Symphony Orchestra to opera, plays, comedy and childrens' performances. It main concert hall has excellent acoustics as does the smaller stage. It has become an important attraction for tourists and locals alike with its excellent facilities and spacious lobby overlooking the Speed River.
