PARKING: Terrible! There are only 40 car parking spaces, which are taken up by guests and staff especially if there is a function on. You have to park on double yellow lines, unload very quickly in a rough area of town and hope nothing gets stolen! Then you have to find street parking, the closest I could find was nearly a mile away. I would not play here again based on the parking alone.
ACCESS: You have to double handle everything, move from the vehicle to the mini lobby/fire escape so you can unload quickly without risk of theft, then move the kit the entire length of the room, a pain when leaving as all the guests fill this tiny space youre trying to manoeuvre large equipment through.
FACILITIES: The set up and performance area itself is fairly reasonable, you have a large bay window or the option of a mini stage area (but the ceiling is too low for my kit on the stage) decent amount of space to set up in. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m
STAFF: There was no one around to show me where I was allowed to set up, I was rushing round trying to find someone (note parking comments about double yellow lines) I had to navigate back up through reception to ask someone. Its a twisty turny old victorian building with lots of low ceilings. It took 3 attempts to get the house lights down, eventually after nearly 45 minutes into playing, we were no longer surrounded by bright fluorescent house lights and mine could do their magic.
POWER PROVISION: Plenty of 13A sockets in close proximity to setup area
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "My first ever black listed venue! Purely for the parking, such a shame."
