I have now seen a number of bands at the Tramshed and they have all been amazing. The venue is outstanding, easy to get to from the train station and an easy walk from the City centre. The staff are always helpful and really friendly...More

Found out by chance that Zombies were performing, and managed to book tickets the week before. First visit to Tramshed and slightly nervous, expecting to stand, on a warm and muggy night, for several hours to see a classic band some years older than us....More
