  • Easily the most limited viewing venue in the country. If you are under 5"11 you will not see the performance unless you get to a barrier at the front of the balcony or stand right at the front. Unfortunately for bands of a certain popularity, this is the only venue that is available. When sold out it is worryingly crowded. Door staff are polite, bar is overpriced as per usual. Parking is pretty good.
