Saw catfish and the Bottlemen and this venue, absolutely beautiful surroundings with great sound, on the down side it is fairly small... All although sometimes this is good as it can improve the atmosphere it also means it gets really really hot, and although that should be expected at a gig people where literally dripping afterwards, also doormen where not...

I purchased some tickets for a concert last weekend but was unfortunately unable to attend for personal reasons. I therefore had the tickets reprinted and issued a letter to a friend authorising her to pick up the tickets on my behalf. This is common practice nationwide in theatres if the buyer is unable to attend in person. The tickets were... More

This is a medium-sized venue so, even if you are seated at the back, you would have a good view. Accesses are easy, though the labelling of the VIP entrance was non-existent (we wanted the other one). Bar is OK by theatre standards @ £13 for 4 drinks. The multi-storey is 100yds up the hill - it is worth having... More

I went to Moderat's concerts on the 7th April and a bouncer almost ruined my night. I had a really bad experience with the bouncer in charge of the wardrobe. I forgot my tickets inside my jacket (as did a lot of people) because nobody told me it would be necessary to access the pit. I realized 30 seconds after... More

I came to Brighton for a concert and this venue was truly nice. Great view and sound, that sometimes can be too loud at the front, where I was. The building is amazing and the staff super nice. Hope being back!

So, yes, the Dome was built for horses. Amazing :) I was there for a conference and it was a really pretty setting to be in. The loos were clean and modern, the theatre itself seemed a bit dated, and taller people found the seats a bit cramped while sitting for a day of talks. I'm not sure if the... More

Attended last night to see Einaudi flying over from Belfast. The venue (aside from Einaudi himself) made the trip worth it. An absolutely perfect venue to see him. I sat in row O middle seat directly behind him playing piano all evening which only further helped how mesmerising he is. The venue was fantastic, drinks allowed inside to enjoy the... More

Saw Ludovico Einaudi here in March here - the view from row x (rear stall - centre) was amazing and the acoustics were excellent. The atmosphere was really nice and the venue is really classic. Would definitely recommend this venue and would come again. :)

We went to see City and Colour and Lucy Rose in February.The building is imposing, the bars are numerous and well-stocked, the toilets were clean and the queues were not too long, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Inside the concert space, there is a good view of the stage and the sound quality was amazing.

This is a fantastic venue to see a stage performance. I saw City and Colour there this week and it was truly amazing. The lighting and sound was the best I have ever experienced.
