A smallish venue, but great sound and quite atmospheric. Floor was laid out mostly tables and chairs, with couple of rows of seats at back. Small bar serving reasonably priced drinks. And best of all, Skerryvore were brilliant !. Car parking (free in the evenings ) just adjacent to the Station buildings.

Useful venue for performing arts, with good toilets, bar at most events, with helpful staff, and adjacent parking free in the evenings. Music programme is varied throughout the year and will suit most tastes. Pick something to suit you and you will not be disappointed.

We came here to see an evening performance by the ever-wonderful Lancashire Hotpots. How wonderful to see the old station buildings put to such good use in a sympathetic conversion. The bar was well-priced and situated within the room used for the performance so that people queuing didn't miss the show. The seating was arranged in such a way that... More

Wandered in during kite festival and was surprised. Could get drink at bar or a hot drink off small table set up by the stage. Nice place to escape crowds for a few minutes. The day we called in there was a concert on as well.

Went here for a recent concert. Good sound, nice bar and facilities. Really good spot for smallish concerts. Nice to have a venue like this around Lancaster, will be keeping an eye out for other things to see there.
