This is a wonderful venue where the sound quality is outstanding. The seating is steep and well spaced so everyone is guaranteed a great view of those on stage. Has a restaurant and bar on site although we did not use them.

The auditorium is entered on the first floor up a set of stairs though they probably have a lift. The seating is steep which allows everyone a good view of the stage but may be off putting for some.
