Great show, but no hot water!

Firstly the city hall hasn’t changed in years but it’s reasonably priced and shows are always good... read more

Had an ok evening. Seats are very cramped and it was so hot in there. Not much atmosphere really seeing as we were at a Bryan Ferry concert, but then it’s not the O2.

Lovely old building but very dated decor inside and in need of some tlc to restore inside and parts of the outside. We have attended concerts at Sheffield City Hall which has been restored and is a magnificent venue.

I felt it was quite sad that they have allowed this building to decline in this way

Here again this time to see Dara O’Briain. Sound not great and security measures have moved on from handing over soft drink tops when you go in to now not being allowed in at all with any plastic bottles - shame that’s not obvious until you’ve wasted your money. Suggest this is made much clearer in all pre-show information.

As the City hall had said doors opening at 7 imagine my surprise after watching wave after wave of fellow comedy goer's passingly for 40 minutes, to be queuing round the block at 7:45. despite being asked for tickets 3 time they were not inspected or looked at.
The strange bag search, looking for contraband, (but unsure what contraband when questioned) seemed pointless and only handbags were looked at not bulging coat pocket.
Overall a great show

Thoroughly enjoyed an evening of Buddy Holly and the Cricketers (60 years on tribute), with the fantastic English Rock and Roll Orchestra at City Hall, but oh my goodness, the venue was absolutely freezing!!!! Thankfully we did warm up at the end, but only because we got up out of our seats to dance in the aisles! Several people left half way through as they really couldn't stand the cold!
