Fantastic venue watching keifer sutherland. Relaxed crowd, who are there for the music. Beautiful venue and wether you are upstairs or down you have a good view. It's all standing downstairs and sitting upstairs. Seats are like stairs, can numb the bum after abit.

What an amazing night watching this band. Venue was packed and absolutely electric. What a shame Albert Hall have to spoil things by their outrageous charges for drinks and cloakroom fees. Shocking prices. Nathaniel and his crew were simply outstanding.

Went to see 'Nathaniel and The Night Sweats' here, what a cracking venue. Bundles of historic architecture. Managed to get seating (it's only benches by the way) on the first floor right next to the stage, this did mean a bit of a trek to...More

My tickets (Paul Heaton) were for the balcony and if you didn't have those tickets you couldn't gain access to the balcony.
