“Poor acoustics and transmitted noise”

Reviewed January 6, 2013

The acoustics fro classical music in the Oval Hall are appalling, especially in the stalls under the balcony. Many concerts are also spoiled by amplified noise transmitted from another venue within the City Hall building which starts towards the end of most classical concerts.

I have been to many concerts/ theatre productions here, but more recently to my daughters' graduation ceremony. The whole event was perfectly timed, and the theatre tastefully decorated without being too fussy. The staff were very helpful, particularly with elderly relatives. Altogether a great place to visit.

We went to see a pantomime during the christmas holidays and were very pleased with our evening.The show itself was great but the place was grand and well run with a place for adults to buy alcohol and snacks.Would definately recommend ,and will be returning often.

Great sound, great view from anywhere in the auditorium, great atmosphere. This is the best place in town for concerts of any kind.
