Attended a summer evening concert in this gorgeous venue in the heart of Plymouth. The design and artistry of the building is excellent with some very creative lighting effects. Well worth a visit!

I love these old municipal buildings; all brass plaques, shiny solid wooden banisters and a 1950's shot at grandeur (within council budget). It's the kind of place where Norman Wisdom would have been called up in front of 'the beak', a representation of post-war optimism,...More
