I will only use this venue if I can't see the same show or music anywhere else within 30 miles. Solely because the car parking is dreadful. The multi storey car park is a car scraper with sharp brand in your way in many areas...More

Always good to see & hear Jools and his Orchestra, especially at the more intimate venue of Butterworth Hall. Ignoring other peoples reviews, I thought that Marc Almond was very good and entertaining.

Visited here this week to see Gary Numan in the Butterworth Hall. Really nice comfortably laid out hall. And the rest of the facilities were good too. Clearly there are some development works going on too which will make it even better. Nice to use...More
