We went here for the first time to see LeAnn Rimes and had an amazing night. The seats are well spaced out, can see the stage without any problems and great leg room. We had Circle seats. The sound works so well in this environment and can hear it all. LeAnn Rimes was outstanding and she was so good. Her... More

Parking in the nearest car park (private) at £3.50 per hour, you wind your way between pillars looking for a space where you can actually park. A short trip from the exit and through an under pass up some steep mucky stairs to the left of the fountain and you are there. (There is a ramp section for wheelchairs) The... More

Having been to the usual very old theatres in Manchester etc I was quite surprised at the Bridgwater being so modern. It is comfortable but lacks the 'Theatre Experience' for me. Great for trams though, the stop is just over the road.

Difficult to obtain the discount card to use at the NCP car park due to queues at the box office, payed £12.50 for the duration of the concert. Worth pre-booking car park ticket. Due to... More

Good Venue Went here for a concert and it was ok. Nice pleasing place to be in. Parking is an issue and you must park in the car park opposite which does charge a premium
