I like visiting here both for lunch and concerts. The main hall is well maintained and in good condition. The inside corridors could do with a freshen up. The walls are marked and the carpets are worn in places. The outside of the building needs...More

The auditorium is stunning. I went to a concert and sat right at the back in the Upper Gallery. However, sound quality was excellent. Seats along the side face 90 degrees to the stage and would have benefited by being slanted. The real negative is...More

All good, but A3&4 will be on the extreme left I think and very close to the stage. C22&23 pretty central and only a few feet further back.

Front is stalls or front of upper terrace probably best. All seats have good views but if the children are small then they may not see so well from further back in the stalls.
