The seating in this place is superb. Really good view of the stage with plenty of legroom. Te staff re very helpful directing the audience with a smile and wee joke. The toilets are clean and well maintained. The refreshments are not over priced.

I have been to the concert hall several times but tonight the concert wall held in the new and more intimate hall, very comfortable and the sound was excellent. The staff are always very helpful and friendly.

Is a decent concert hall like this rather than the morgue that is the Usher Hall. The sound is excellent as is the view from most seats. Easy access from the train or bus. Loads of places to eat nearby although at Christmas time everywhere...More
