Second time seeing Bill Bailey at GLive and another brilliant show. The venue works really well and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Only downside is the bar which doesn't work at all and is really annoying.

We go here a lot. Great venue. Parking close by and only £1 after 6pm!! Easy to get to and great access into the main area. The show itself was just exceptional. A must see for any Queen fan or anyone after an entertaining evening.......

We went to see Roger Taylors Queen and can only say how good the whole show was, totally brilliant performance from start to finish.

This venue is a well run theatre with coffee bar and restaurant. The production of Bizet's Carmen was very good, presented by an Opera Company from Moldova. This was our third opera at G Live and We have also been for ballet productions. Can recommend.
