Owner description: The Anvil is one of Hampshire’s largest entertainment venues and offers a wide range of entertainment for all ages including stand-up comedy, theatre, ballet & opera, classical music, pop concerts and pantomime. This year we’ve welcomed top class performers including Lee Evans, Boy George and Billy Ocean and also had the pleasure of hosting one-off events such as the last UK concert appearance of the great pianist Alfred Brendel.

Totally brilliant acoustics wherever you sit, so you can book late and not be disappointed. Convenient, cheap parking and also very close to the railway station. Superb variety of events. Friendly helpful staff. Actually I've not bothered to go to London for concerts for years now - such a good selection available so locally.

Second visit to the Anvil, the staff have always struck me as pleasant and unlike other venues, they seem to have enough loos to cope with the peak demand.

£1 parking after 6pm is helpful in the local car parks

Always an enjoyable venue. The staff are friendly, and whist the auditorium is spacious there is always an intimate atmosphere. Only problems at present is finding the Anvil car parking in the continuing chaotic road closures with no signposting!

Really great venue. Very modern with easy cheap parking. Friendly and helpful staff. Acoustics are good and really good stage visibility from many positions. Also I feel that it is still small enough to have a more intimate feel.
