Great night in a fantastic intimate venue. Adnams bar and a beer garden rounded off a perfect evening. Will definitely be back. Being on st. Benedicts means loads of places to eat and drink nearby. Great vibe!

Watched Police Dog Hogan and loved this venue. It is small and personal with great sound and the band mixed with the audience in the bar after the gig. Lots of pubs and restaurants nearby and a good bar within the Arts Centre.
