  • One of the better venues to "see" a band, place has great atmosphere and sound quality is usually excellent. Big enough for a good size crowd and atmosphere but still get the up close feel watching a band. Always enjoy a gig here, staff that work the venue are decent and friendly, easy enough to get to from center of town on foot, underground station close by, usually on street parking nearby.
  • Love this venue usually but at the Volbeat gig tonight my partner and I had allocated seats in the disabled section. When we got there we were hurriedly shown over to two benches on the left hand side both of which were parallel with the side walls not the stage so for anyone to see they had to sit and twist to see the stage. There were a few people in the section standing with VIP lanyards so I'm not sure if the VIPs and accessibility guests were all put together but it was the first time I have not really enjoyed a gig and I have been there loads of times.
