The concert hall was packed out for Mick Hucknell concert. Great seats, fantastic acoustics. Staff organise everything without you noticing. It's such a lovely spacious building with nooks and crannies for catching up at the interval. But I think one of the key positives about this great place is the lack of stuffiness. You want to get up and dance & sing along? Well what's stopping you? The hall was certainly rocking last night.

Only negative - drinks are bit expensive but hey ho.

A splendid venue which hosts musical performances from classical to country and much more. The accoustics are excellent and the seating layout very good. There's a decent shop, restaurant and bar. All in all a great concert hall.

Went to see the opera Tosca which was sung in Italian but with helpful subtitles. Our seats were in the upper circle and the theatre was less than a1/3 full but the quality of the sound was very poor. At the interval went for ice cream and at £2.50 for a small pot was rip off

The concert hall very welcoming. There is a cafe/bar where you can get something to eat before a show. It's not really a restaurant type but you can get a soup and sandwich for under £4 and there is salad's and the usual pub grub. Coffee and tea,The bar is well stocked and you can get a nice glass of wine very reasonable. You can pre-order your drink for the interval. Went to see Carmen the Opera with my mum we had really good seats was looking forward to this as it's meant to be an opera with songs full of passion a good story of the gypsy girl falling for the soilder. Well what a load of rubbish,!!!!!! The acting was really bad the music very slow and their was no feeling of enjoyment .At one point after the first act the stage was changed and the hall was in darkness but you could see everything going on this was all done in silence. I have never saw anything like it before and I go to a lot of musicals.Felt there should have at least been a curtain or something put up so the audience couldnt see what was going on. A few people beside me commented on this and like myself we actually left at the interval. What a waste of a good show it could have been better.
