“Good venue if in the right seat...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

A great auditorium with good acoustics. However, it is a "square" auditorium, so the best seats are those facing the stage, rather than the side balconies. Also the bars get incredibly busy and are generally understaffed, so it is a bit of a gamble to get a drink during the interval AND get back for the second half...

“Not a pretty thing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Will not go back here in a hurry. Been to far better places that are cheaper. Can't say the service was anything to write home about either. The owners need to dress this place up in all sorts of ways.

“Snide merchandise sellers - need a dose of their own medicine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

OK venue although plastic seats are crude. Worst thing about it is the Merchandise stall. Apparently it is run by an external vendor who is not directly employed by the centre. The merchandise sellers are snide, objectionable students earning beer money types who seem to think (in a delusional way) that they are cleverer than their customers. They make snide remarks and crack jokes about customers standing inches away, thinking that it will all go over their heads. A pathetic shower. Next time, I will take a video to expose their behaviour.

“Well organised venue, just not very pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Been to the Brighton Centre too many times to count.
It copes extremely well with the crowds, they could improve the ability to park, or should I say, they should have a price incentive to the BC users. It can be quite expensive.
*TIP* Pay by credit card at the barrier rather than cuing at the machine with all the others.

“OF DEARY ME”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Complicated with one bar only too many people trying to obtain refreshment, bored staff selling programmes and items so expensive, no wonder they don't smile - a dreadful experience
