I have been here with my girlfriend to see Mark Thomas and the show has been excellent. The venue is quite small and there aren't numbered seats, so I suggest you queue as soon as possible to get a nice seat. I would definitely come...More

It was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster with the poets not reading the audience very well. I felt they brought the mood down. Jennifer Ewan band then had to bring the audience back into a happy place!
