I am not a regular gate visitor, but very time I go I ask myself, why not. The venue is so good providing a large stage area allowing artists to move without restriction and multiple entry points. I always have a great view from wherever...More

Great use of an old church; a versatile and welcoming venue. Well redecorated in a modern way - friendly staff. At the time that we visited there was a wonderful exhibition of artwork based on Lego by Little Big Art - well worth a visit....More
