Haven't been to the Spa for decades but the place has worn well. Reasonably comfortable seating to watch the concert with no issues. One point, I was told the show would finish at 1015 so booked a taxi accordingly. However, we were out at 9:45 which could have meant a half hours wait in miserable weather, we got it sorted...

Beautiful building and I imagine hosts a vast array of events etc during the year. We visited for a Vintage Fair which was well organised and along with the usual stalls there were some excellent entertainers.

Experienced a concert here on 29th October. Lovely location and a nice walk from the south bay. Concert hall was small and therefore able to see clearly the people on stage. The bar area was large and seemed able to cope with the amount of patrons although we did not use the facility. My only complaint is that the seats... More
