Often came here for the propaganda event which unfortunately isn’t on any more! It would be good to do more indie music nights as they were always great fun, cheap drinks and good variety of music. Great place for a night out!

This old building proved to be very good for a music gig. It was a standing-only venue with a large bar area inside the main hall. The evening proved to be a full house and sight of the stage was somewhat restricted. I recommend that...More
