I recently attended a conference at this facility and was really impressed with the architecture, layout and facilities at the venue. There is an impressive program of events, concerts on at the college and well worth supporting.

You can see some fantastic theatre here for amazing price. Go and watch the super talented students for a fraction of the usual theatre prices. You may be watching the next generation of Oscar winners!

This was a 1 p.m. concert given by the students specialising in percussion on the day in question. £8 entrance fee with no reductions. The conductor really enjoyed his job in deputising. A robust performance.

I don't know how much it is worth visiting the inside of the building (unless it's for a performance) but the building is a great piece of architecture and is worth a look if you're in the area.

Amazing venue and a fabulous show. It's an amazing venue not too large which makes the shows very intimate.

My home college is a wonderful place to be. The public cafe is FAR better than the student side, though on the expensive side it is always of good quality. Would recommend it for a coffee or business meeting.
