“Magnificent place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We've been here a few times now, NYE concert, pop concert and an orchestra. All brilliant, I'd travel well out of my way to see music here rather than somewhere more inferior thats nearer me. The sound where ever you are is amazing. The seats were excellent until we landed up in a high up balcony when they suddenly seemed a bit of a pinch and theres no central aisle down the middle so you people can only get in at either end, so if your sitting at the end your going to be up and down like a yo yo!

“One of the best concert venues in the UK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Great venue, perfect acoustics. We attended a concert by the CBSO and the Treorchy Mail Voice Choir. The sound was captivating. We were on the 5th floor left ledge which sounds pretty dodgy but the seats were free standing so they could be moved for more leg room and the vantage point was excellent. One of the best concert venues in the UK

“Great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

I love this place - it's difficult to believe it's there when you look at the outside of the building. Wonderful acoustics, lovely setting inside the ICC. I've seen all kinds of things here and travel miles out of my way if there is something I really want to see on tour: I know it will be better at Symphony Hall!
