Magic of the Clannad & Proposal in truly Celtic Way 💞
Nov 2021 • Couples
We went well shall I say I was carried in literally due to my injury to see Clannad yesterday. Not the way it was planned but missing it would be even more painful considering it probably was our last chance to see them.
I must mention the manager, Bryn who was ever so attentive & understanding & couldn’t do any more to accommodate us.
My partner and now after the concert my fiancée met his idols in person Moya & Paul, such a spiritual deep people. He was following the band since the age of 13 and it really meant the world to him 🌎 Clannad hit every expectation & more! The concert was absolutely amazing & what a magical and cleansing experience too! The proposal in a truly Celtic style, very intimate very personal to both of us & what a way to remember it too 💞💞💞

Great venue, laissez faire management
Oct 2021 • Solo
Went to see the Waterboys who were great (except no sax). So annoying that so many people came in to take their seats after the band started causing a kerfuffle. Presumably from the bar as all clutching drinks. Management should not allow this disruption to people already seated and enjoying the music. Must also be annoying for the band. Also, small complaint: selection and quality of the drinks in offer very poor. Otherwise a surprising jewel of a venue.

Saw Aussifloyd at the Forum. Great venue able to see over the heads of the people in front, makes a change. Great sounds. Well located near the centre of Bath.

Great concert, great sound and great venue
Oct 2021 • Couples
Have visited here a few times now for different concerts. The venue is perfectly located in the city centre to use public transport, parking and local restaurants for a cheeky pre concert drink.

We have always found the venue to be very well run and is a genuinely great place to see live music. Love it!

Spoiled by thugs again.
Oct 2021
Went to see The Waterboys who were great. The concert was ruined (for the third occasion) by rowdy immature middle aged men and women , trying to be like Noel Gallagher, drinking and shouting and being boorish and talking loudly through the entire concert, no security or staff to intervene.

May consider stoppping going to concerts there; shame as the venue is like a mini Royal Albert Hall.

Hope things are better for my next concerts - Ward Thomas and Paul Weller.

‘ A fabulous night listening to our favourite singer in such a cosy venue.’
Oct 2021 • Couples
This place is perfectly situated in the city centre and a 5 minute walk from all the main sights.
The theatre itself Is such a beautiful venue, with friendly staff and reasonably priced drinks!
The toilets were a tad dirty and smelly. The theatre’s very clean and is well maintained. But they had the heating on when it wasn’t that cold outside and with all the body heat, it was very hot.
But the seats were very comfy, even though we didn’t sit in them for long.
Overall, a fabulous night listening to our favourite singer in such a cosy venue.

Billy still got it!
Oct 2021
Billy Ocean amazing...still got it! Fantastic voice....audience loved him. Only downside we couldn't dance near stage as we did at Shalamar concert recently so confined to seating area. Felt a bit restricted. Support band really good too with Temptation songs.

Rude and disorganised
Oct 2021 • Solo
Bad organisation and no communication nearly had me miss event. Rude front of house staff when I tried to explain the situation. Finally sorted when I went to find out what was happening, no one bothered to tell me situation change. All could have been done hours before
Really rude manager who didn't care.
Security staff at event fantastic

Amazing building.
Brilliant seats everywhere. Fantastic sound quality. We were sitting near the back and had a great experience of the show.
Very long queues at all the bars and really very long queues for the ladies toilet.
