Great venue, a fantastic place to see bands, we just need a few bands that visit all the other 02 venues to come to Bournemouth as well. The venue has really good facilities as long as you hold your nose anywhere near the gents!

I went to see The Cat Empire at the O2 Academy Bournemouth. Venue was an old beautiful Victorian building and a great size, not too large nor too small. Bar seemed good, toilets were interesting.. but overall a fantastic experience!

The former Bournemouth Opera House is a great venue for music and club nights and it has an incredible laser system that has to be seen to be believed (better than any of the clubs in London that I have attended over the past 20+ years). I've been to this venue 4 or 5 times over the past 5 years an have always enjoyed it, but this Saturday just gone (5 October 2013) we found the new management under the O2 group to have changed things for the worse - the bar staff were few and far between, slow and apathetic and the drinks prices as high as in a London club (if not higher!). Beware!

Please spend a few squillions on this place and take it back to it's stunning glory days. It is a beautiful place, but separate for an overhaul. Great sound though.
