The music hall tends to have more music shows than the theatre. The seating is good and it is always warm and clean. There is also a lovely coffee shop which is open during the day to the public.

I have been here on many occasions over the years. It is my favourite concert venue....small enough to be fairly intimate and to be able to see the performers...but large enough to have great acoustics. You have to be speedy to get to the bar...More
