With Russell Watson being in Watford it saved us doing the trek to London and back (back being the worst bit). The venue is a bit dated but good acoustics. The food was acceptable. Suggest pre ordering food and drink especially interval.

I’m local to Watford and delighted with the outstanding entertainment opportunities Watford Colosseum afford us. However, I really fail to understand their inability to recognise their market for given events. Ticket sales should indicate the level capacity. The marketing department should be able to predict...More
