I have visited this theatre on many many occasions and have seen a great number of artists. All people are catered for here, whether it be a comedian, solo artists, orchestras, ballet and they also show live events when the Welsh National team play Rugby. All prices are reasonable for the entertainment provided. The acoustics are fantastic. My one criticism... More

The concert area is excellent with great views and acoustics, however, the rest of the venue is very dated and poorly designed for the present. Plastic glasses in the bar area made it feel like an outdoor event and not a special occasions. I'll wear my wellies and duffle next time as it's certainly not special there.

We came here to see Paul Carrack live and he was brilliant. You can have a good view from wherever you are seated. The staff were very helpful and it was easy to get a programme and other merchandise.

some really good shows come here, but venue a little dated, and difficult to get to because in the centre of the city. free cloakroom when we visited, queue for refreshment in interval too long.

Lovely concert hall with good views from any seat on any tier The seat I had was on Level 5 and it meant quite a few stairs from Level 1 onwards. There is one small elevator, but I was told it was for wheelchairs only. Not good for those NOT in a wheelchair, but with reduced mobility ! Staff were... More

We recently visited St David's Hall in Cardiff to see Mary Chapin Carpenter. It was an excellent performance and Mary Chapin Carpenter played guitar and sang very well.

Went to the St Davids Hall last night 29/01/17 to see Lord of the dance which was fantastic, but I was very impressed with the hall it's self, plenty of staff on hand to help you find your seats, they had everything you would want and easy to get too. One draw back I could only see one lift and... More
