Have been coming to the Wolverhampton Civic Hall for over 30 years and have to say I love it. Don't know what people are saying about the acoustics as I have always found them to be great. Saw James here in early December and they were fantastic as always. The views from everywhere on the floor were great and the... More

Visited last Friday night to see the Bootleg Beatles for the first time and was looking forward to having a bit of a boogie. The band were AB FAB and were keen to get the party started however I felt the evening was spoilt by the venue staff who felt it necessary to continually patrol up and down the aisles... More

Went to see Ken Dodd. And an excellent show, but the venue let him down. The seating is too close together, with no leg room, dire for a 5 hour show. The toilets could not accommodate the numbers. And the bar remained open throughout the show thereby encouraging the audience to get up during the show ( so the whole... More

The civic is a great local venue, it's not over priced for the entertainment provided and is full of character. Attended on Sunday to see Jimmy Carr at a bargain price and had a great evening! It is going through a refurbishment at the moment so looked a little shabby but looking forward to seeing the finished result. I think... More

I have been going to the Civic for years.... it was always a bit of a dump to be honest, long queues at the bar, expensive booze.....but worst of all, very poor acoustics for a concert venue, well slowly they are supposedly doing it up... went to see James (who were excellent), but sadly many of the old problems still...

We've been here loads of times it's a superb concert venue better than anything else in the Midlands by far, one of the few things that people of Wolverhampton can be proud of. Its currently in the middle of a refurbishment, please please please don't spoil it.
