Great concert hall.

Saw Rick Astley here recently. Excellent venue with very helpful staff. So good we've booked several other concerts this summer. Well worth a visit.

Great place to see and hear music. You can see the stage wherever you sit. Drinks expensive in the bar

Went to see Caro Emerald here. Sat in stalls F4 and 5. View was great despite being on the end of a row. The rows are in 3 sections with the outer two being angled towards the stage. Good bar in foyer and also a pizza / café outlet. Car parking is close by (£6.50/ night)

We have now attended several concerts at the Bridgewater Hall, all of them have been excellent. The seating is comfortable with a perfect view of the stage. The sound resonates around the auditorium and enhances the musical experience. Easy to recommend.

We enjoy the lunchtime concerts and those in the evening. We have attended a number of the organ concerts which are a joy with anecdotal words from Mr Scott
