Behind the coffee shop is an art gallery which at the moment is displaying photographs taken in various war zones. The main performance space was closed when we visited.

I love this place for music ..., the acoustics are awesome and it always feels special. Loads of parking virtually opposite and easy to find.

Through the cafe, not up the slope. Such a gem of an old building. You don't imagine it could be as beautiful as it is. Go!

Some have left revues of the cafe here and it is NOT the right place to do so. This ex-church is now a music/concert venue and worth a visit. It has a capacity of 1,066 (!) and where the vicar once preached has been changed...More
