I bought my husband hockey tickets for his birthday. We were seated in section 226 which faced the players boxes. This is near the top in a handicapped spot. I was impressed with the mezzanine on the main floor. It is very spacious and has a pleasing, bright decor. There is an elevator nearby for the handicapped to use. The... More

We have seen numerous events at the Winspear from the group Chicago, to the Edmonton Symphony orchestra and the Richard Eaton Singers. The Messiah was absolutely amazing. The sound is terrific from any seat. There is no bad seat in the place

I want to talk about the concert hall itself rather than the programming. It is one of the most stunning sound spaces I have ever been in and I have been to many of the major concert halls in Europe and on this continent! It is amazing. One can hear every instrument delineated from nearly every place in the hall.... More

We've purchased a sampler pack of season tickets for several years now. I would recommend that for anyone who would rather pick and choose performances to see. The only downside is that you never have the same seat but I'm usually able to get very good seats for each performance. The venue is awesome and we've become lovers of the... More

State of the art venue and amazing sight lines from even the cheapest seats. Can clearly see the stage. No bad seat in the house. Amazing world class facility.

Have seen many concerts and performances over the years at the Winspear, and it has, by far, the best sound of any venue in Edmonton. There is not a bad seat in the house!

I have been to multiple shows in this building and I am very happy to offer a great review. It is just a wonderful evening out, friendly staff, you can have a couple of drinks and watch a show with some of the best sound acoustic in the world.

The Winspear Centre is an excellent venue for all musical events with great acoustics with convenient (if sometimes a bit expensive) parking and good access from public transportation.

Doesn't matter what you are seeing. It will sound so much better in this facility. Every seat is good for viewing and listening. Great handicap parking behind.

We attended an event at the Francis Winspear Centre in May 2015. Apologies for the late review; new to Trip Advisor. We were concerned upon arrival on Day 1 that we were running too late to get a good seat in the general admission group; however, there was not a bad seat in the house. The seats were comfortable, albeit... More
