Booked to see this show on at the Colosseum for one evening. Very lively, entertaining performance of song, dance and acrobatics, enhanced by the lovely updated thatre with its renowned acoustic quality. The Colosseum has now evolved into an updated, comfortable entertainment venue from its early years and now provides good quality refreshments, in a much more modern environment. We... More

The grange of events, performances and concerts on offer is great! Jools Holland's concert was a great way to spend an evening listing to real musicians who lift the spirits and evoke memories of jazz heros.

We have been to various shows here including Ken Dodd, David Essex, Alan Davies, snooker, celebrity talks, calender girls, Collabro, Sam Bailey and many many more. We have never been disappointed with the performance. Parking is easy in the Town Hall car park as long as you do not park in the NHS Staff bays which are not very well... More

My daughter took me here to watch the Circus of Horrors. It is a vast auditorium, much bigger than other local theatres. Maybe too big, but I can imagine going to see a decent gig the place would be / could be fantastic. The staff were helpful, although usual story, there could have been more bar staff. All in all,...

It was so busy when we arrived, staff obviously overwhelmed as the queues at the bar were ridiculous. We sat in the circle and it was comfortable but quite warm, I noticed quite a few other people had stripped their layers off. Staff were friendly enough and it was easy to exit the venue. Concert was fantastic as was sound.... More

I have been to two of these nights so far and whilst it's great fun and quite cheesy the last visit was disappointing. The drinks were really expensive - £20 for a small wine, a coke and a vodka and coke. We had to wait about 40 minutes to get served! We always ordered the same drinks but each round... More

First time here and very well organised. View from every seat was good. Nice bar to relax in. We'll be looking to come back for more events. It's so handy just being off the M1
