Went and seen Carl Barron, as well as an expo. I think it is good set up, they hold some great shows as well. Parking can be a bit of an issue.

Well run and organised events. Volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable. Drinks are well overpriced (to be expected). Good venue, needs more shows to visit!

Love the hall for live concerts Plenty of space to move about even when seated. The pre show drinks have a wide variety to select from. Volunteer staff manning the doors are friendly and helpful
