Portsmouth is very lucky to have such a great Independent Music Venue. When you look at the history of the acts that have played here, some early on in their careers, many more revisiting again and again because they love playing here. Has a capacity of about 500 I think but even when sold out you still retain that intimate feeling and always have a good close experience with the acts. With the bar used at the edge of the wedge, the bar staff cope well even on a sell out night.
It will not suit everyone, the Wedge is about watching great acts and feeling close, it has stayed true to the bands and the audience, You Can keep the bigger corporate venues, for me there is only one way to enjoy a great band!!

Haven't been here for years but was treated to a night out with friends and I'd forgotten how much I love this place. Ok, it's not the most glamorous venue on the South Coast but it's the vibe of the place. Great sound, great atmosphere & always close to the action.

Been here several times now! It has a decent capacity without loosing the intimate feel, good bar and easy to find. The sound was a tad unbalanced the last time I was here but not enough to loose rating over. Last bands I went to see here were Thuum and Seething Akira...both were well worth the drive from Poole to see. Will definitely come back for another gig here

I regularly visit the Wedgwood Rooms for gigs and always find it a great place to go. I recently attended at a gig to raise money for charity and Geoff the manager, and the rest of the staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating which resulted in us raising our highest total yet. Great venue, great staff!
