The auditorium is split into central and two side blocks by aisles.
Seats rise in a steep rake in front of the wide stage.
The wood and brick auditorium is unusually restful.
in all seats, best in row A and row O seats 7 to 12 and 27 to 32.
Choosing Seats in General:
Most seats feel close to the stage.
In the central block at top price Rows E to J are prime
with the rake
(seats arranged on steps to
help see over rows in front) allowing the best view of the stage possible. Then choose K,
L, D, C, B, A then M.
Wheelchair users have space at the sides of row A.
Rows N back to U are worthwhile at second price, taken in alphabetical
order. Only rows S to U begin to feel a little far from the stage.
Row O has an aisle in front of it for access. This allows extra legroom but
makes the seats behind feel further from the stage - also, there are metal
bars in front of row O, which may annoy some. Again, opt for the centre
In the side blocks the same choice of rows apply, but
take the centre block first as for the same price you might as well have the
best view possible.
General Hazard Notes:
The first and last few seats in rows A to M are worth
avoiding as the viewing angle is poor when the full width of the stage
is not used.
Metal bars in front of row O affect sightlines.
The constant threat that the venue will be demolished or permanently
lost to live performance as an exclusively “conference venue.”
