  • A great theatre and arts hub in Brighton. Great staff too. Oh and there's a very nice bar there as well.
  • A gem of a theatre, with easy-to-use facilities for putting on performances, yet with an informal approach to letting its audience feel part of the proceedings. I enjoyed both the show (a literary evening) and the conversations in the bar before and after; and am looking forward to attending future events here.
  • Lovely venue, good bar (even make tea and cofee!) had a great night out! Would come back 100%
  • Great venue in so many ways. I want to love it. But after 2 gigs where the vocalist is almost drowned out - I can only conclude that something isn't quite right here. I'll keep going in hope though.
  • Great venue. Saw a one man play, with a chance to meet the writer and actor afterwards. Staff were friendly and helpful
