Went to see Gary Barlow and what a great night we had. Amazing building and all the seats are so close up for a good view. So much better than an arena with the theatre been so close up and personal. Would definitely visit again...More

Call or email the venue, they will be able to advise (but you may have to wait until a few days before the show, they may not have this info at this time).
