Here for a works night out. One big plus is all the available parking on the seafront. No time for food after work so we all had something from the bar/coffee shop. Jacket potatoes, veggie chilli, sausage rolls, cake, baguettes and sandwiches all perfectly edible...More

We are lucky to have this venue so close to home. Front row seats to witness some class shows. Ice cream hellishly expensive but always a good night there.

The actual show was fantastic. The parking facilities are a complete joke with very limited car parks but huge restrictive and vacant resident parking zones only available from 21.00 ( shows start at 20.00 ) More accessible parking is required to make this a convenient...More
