Saw two acts in a matter of days at the Centre. Curved air band and Jenni Murray. Two different types events that were well hosted by the centre. Nice volunteers and a good bar. Well worth a visit.

A great evening of Fleetwood Mac music, and the band were really friendly and chatty after the gig. Highly recommend.
