“Over priced”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We enjoyed the concert, really a chamber music group. I felt it was misrepresented at the box office but the musicians were good. The music was a list of classical greatest hits.

“Excellent performance soured by dishonest ticket sales”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

We regretted not having done our research first. We were ushered to the rear ticket sales desk by the guy giving out flyers outside - he had followed us into the building. The women at the kiosk insisted that we would be disappointed if we sat in the cheaper seats as the seats were not tiered. She reduced the expensive seats to £30 each to reduce the price difference and we went for these. Her booking chart appeared to show very few seats left with most marked green or empty but I noticed when we purchased the tickets she marked our seats in red ink. The whole booking experience didn't feel quite right. She advised we arrive an hour early - which we didn't as by then I had done my research and assumed this was just so we had time to kill and bought drinks from the bar as the doors to the hall only opened 20 mins before the performance started at 7pm. The room was only about a 3rd full and people who had sensibly purchased cheaper seats just moved to front anyway!

The actual performance was of an exceptionally high standard marred though by wondering if the 5 musicians were in on the scam as well. It was in a small side room and we didn't get to look in the main hall.

Shop around - don't fall for the tourist concerts at inflated prices

“Best beer for reasonable price!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Pilsner Urquell for best price - nice local food which goes well with beer. More locals then tourists.

“Classical music for the masses...”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

All the favourite pieces played by a string quartet to a high standard. Concert room beautiful and the building is well worth a visit in itself. Add a little extra culture to your trip...
