Good venue for an intimate gig. Magenta were absolutely Brilliant. Note perfect on Live performance of Two complete albums, including an all time favourite of mine - '7'. The two guest musicians (Flautist & Oboe) enhanced it superbly.

Been here a few times. The views are good, acoustics also better than most large venues. The only gripes would be the cost of bar prices and the state of the toilets

You realised almost immediately that this band was really tight! Paul Jones was brilliant, both in voice and on harmonica. The dual lead set-up worked really well with this band - complimenting not competing! Hughie Flint drove the thing along very effectively! We really enjoyed...More
