Lovely setting. Not sure if it`s the best possible concert hall acoustically. Having the Albert Schloss facility underneath is definately great

Thank J-p H

We travelled from Dublin for the Glitterbox night on 6th May.

The queue looked long but moved very quickly. There were lots of staff on-hand to keep an eye on things and point people in the right direction.

The Glitterbox side of things was nothing short of an incredible night. The DJs, performers, etc had clearly put a huge amount of work into planning the event.

However on the venue's side there were three very big issues -
1 - The heat in the place was unbearable. I know it's an old building but why can't they can't open doors to the roof or something to ventilate.
2 - Someone on the balcony spilt a drink down onto the sound engineer's desk. Music stopped for over 10 mins while this got cleaned up. This venue is used for converts all the time so why hasn't this been identified as a risk before. Some perspex, a few screws and silicone sealant would easily prevent it happening.
3 - I don't smoke but the smoking area is wholly inadequate, especially as people were going there just to get fresh air and cool down.

Having said that, we really enjoyed the night. Super friendly crowd in Manchester too !

As many have said before, the venue is stunning. It is worth getting their early to get a central spot on the balcony as the acoustics and view are top notch.

The bar as you come into the balcony area always seemed to have a long queue and you need to be fitter and more patient than me to go down to the main level to queue for a pint. There is however a cans/bottle bar to the left of the stage that never seemed to have a queue.

Also, Sakana is a nice pan-Asian place next door that does a cheap early evening menu if you want a convenient place for dinner before a show.

What an amazing night watching this band. Venue was packed and absolutely electric. What a shame Albert Hall have to spoil things by their outrageous charges for drinks and cloakroom fees. Shocking prices. Nathaniel and his crew were simply outstanding.
