“10cc - brilliant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We had seats on the front row of the balcony left of the stage the veiw was great. 10cc did an acoustic set which was amazing took a break after 1/2 an hour and returned to do all the hits.

Really enjoyable evening, super talented band.

Only word of warning - avoid the hackey cabs! So expensive - we got a private hire going for £7 same journey in a hackney can £12! What a rip off.

“Lots of choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

The range of shows at the Hexagon means that there are often events that you'd like to attend. The seating is comfortable and you have a pretty good view of the stage from virtually everywhere. On-line booking is pretty easy and by sigining up you get good early warning of up-coming events.

“Psychic Sally at The Hexagon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

The Hexagon is an intimate venue for comedy, entertainment, Psychics and snooker! It feels like it has fallen out of the seventies and still wears it's flared trousers and platform shoes...

I found access a little confusing from the nearby car park (access is just past the police station). Once in, the seating was fine, great view, easy access and plenty of atmosphere for a night out.

Sally was on fire, although I didn't have any spirits interested in chatting to me... Phew!

I think the facilities in the venue are all you need, the bar is very normal, and if you want to avoid the interval queues, order in advance and you'll be given a receipt with a number on it... Which corresponds to the place your drinks will be (around the walls of the bar) at interval time.

Fun night out for me, emotional for many others. Would definitely go back to both - in fact I'm taking my daughter to Horrible Histories at the Hexagon soon.
