It's a shame that the ice-rink and pool have gone to pot. It used to be a great place years ago. The main event area is ok in a slightly grubby way. PV attracts some big names and bands so it's worth going for that...More

Went to Madness concert last night, they were good but the sound acoustics were the worst I have heard, ever, and I have 30 years of concerts to compare (inside and festival). Atrocious. Won't be back to Pavilions.

The show itself was fantastic! But the pavilion was a let down all round! Over priced for everything, seats are so uncomfortable and half of them where just school type chairs! With sound and lighting in the aisle right in front of the tier seating,...More

I went with friends to see Dirty Dancing which was a brilliant show marred by the sound deck operator standing right in front of our seats and blocking part of our vision and consequently ruining our enjoyment of the show. Tickets were expensive so we...More
