I went along to this venue to see one of my favourite artists perform recently. I had previously checked out the venue website, which, as expected for a venue named The Grand Paviliion, was very ornate, with plush velvet seating.
However, i was in for a rude awakening upon arrival.
there are no lifts up the many flights of stairs, and no seats either.
the venue is almost derelict.
There is dust all over the floor. holes in the ceiling where the ceiling had collapsed.
they even put up a bed sheet in front of the stage so the bird dropping do not hit the audience on the head.
i understand they are trying to get the venue up and running again after a period of being closed.
but i am honestly surprised it has a safety certificate.
The facilities are poor, and i think soon word will get out and no artist will ever perform there.
sound is terrible and the lighting non-existent, i'm told it's run by volunteers. i recomend they get in someone professional who knows how to run a theatre.
i will never go back there.
