being a musician i attend the platform a lot. its great to see some of the great acts mainly bands playing live on the big stage. the prices are quite reasonable but i find the only thing that lets the platform down is the advertisement as i only get to find out what is on and coming up by visiting the platform, i only knew beatlemaina was on by watching a show a few weeks before! so id say the council may want to put more effort into advertising the platform to increase revenue, i also really enjoyed the beatlemania band my only moan is the beer is expensive and my show was spoilt by the rude bar lady who was having a conversation and was nasty to me when i asked her if she would serve me which ruined my whole evening.

Generally it makes a Saturday evening different from going to the pub. Singing, entertainment, music are mostly provided and it is well worth it for an evening out.

I applaud the people that run the place and the calibe of some
off the acts,but for me the acoustics,seating and general layout
off the theatre does not do it for me as the the premier show theatre in town.I have attended a few shows/acts and am happy
with the prices.
