“Go for the Grand Circle”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I cannot even count how many enjoyable Festival evenings I have spent in this venue (started coming to the International Festival in 1985).
Whilst upstairs is cheap, the best seats are in the grand circle, you are half way up and just have the best sound of this amazing venue.
Staff are consistently lovely and nice and although interval refreshments are pricey, this is the place to go !

“Great venue, even better since the extension”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Has always been a favourite music venue with some of the best orchestras and musicians performing there. The hall is beautiful and the seating not to uncomfortable for an old music venue in the city.

Lovely theatre with good views of the stage. Good acoustics for big orchestral pieces. Watch parking charges at gthe adjacent mutistorey as they can be punitive!
