Introduction

Whatever your event, I will do my utmost to make it a success. I have the equipment to cope with almost any venue, have many years experience, a large music collection from the 50s and before, up to the present chart.

I am happy to work alongside other entertainers, and will try to ensure that the function flows as seamlessly as possible from that aspect, by the most suitable method.

I can cover most functions, and welcome your playlist input should you so wish. I am happy to do themed functions, eg 60s, 70s, 80s, Tamla Motown, or whatever is needed.

If you're unsure about anything to do with your function, or what I can offer, get in touch, as I'm always happy to share information and advice.

Venue Reviews

Parking

Where do I start? Described by two people as the car park from Hell! Suffice to say it's tiny, crowded, and a lottery.


Access

Good. Half a dozen steps straight into the room. Then across the room to the stage.


Facilities

Corner stage, reasonable headroom, adequate space, but no power points there. Long extension needed to get power onto stage.


Staff

Pleasant enough.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge overflow car park if space is limited near the clubhouse.


Access

Could be better. Either two sets of doors and a corridor through the bar area, or round the side down a ramp. Caution: The ramp is steep, so trolleys could be a problem. Full size Transit vans don't fit down this ramp unless mirrors folded and guided in by a colleague. Smaller ones are fine, which gets yo near the fire doors, and up a few steps.


Facilities

Room for a disco and five piece band if you're careful.


Staff

Absolutely fist class. Couldn't be more helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Not a huge car park, and it's shared with other businesses, so can be hard to find a space. If you turn up when a dance class is on, it;s doubly difficult. Do not approach from Holderness Rd, as you'll be snookered by the one way street. Approach from Hedon Rd, and turn into Williamson St. Car Park is signed on right.


Access

Good. Use fire exit in Car Park, along a long corridor, and into function room. Trolley essential.


Facilities

There is a superb stage, with full width steps, and an illuminated backdrop. If the top table of the wedding is up there, you will be at the far side of the room instead, on the floor.


Staff

Absolutely superb. Pleasant, helpful, and good to deal with.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Car park is divided up into sections, and is a little cramped.


Access

Very good. You can park right in front of access doors, and it's all easy into main hall. It's a good walk, and can tolerate fairly large rigs, so a good trolley is advisable.


Facilities

Complete end wall, acres of space. No stage


Staff

Absolutely first class.



Full venue details

Parking

Plenty of car parking round about, but limited parking outside front doors for unloading.


Access

Good. All flat and level. Better access is gained by using fire doors round the sides of the building.


Facilities

There is a tall stage with steps, very wide. If the projector screen is in use this takes up nearly all of the stage, restricting you to the floor, and that's restricted in places by fire doors. The room can be laid out in so many ways that there will be room somewhere.


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonable car park. The Village Hall is next to the car park, but the Sports Association is behind this, and it\'s a long walk.


Access

Long walk. Trolley, and/or roadie advisable. Concrete path though, fairly well lit.


Facilities

Cramped. Don\'t take too much kit, it\'s a small venue, lacking in space. The pool table doesn\'t help in this respect, unless you want to work on it.


Staff

Perfectly fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park, limited parking near to doors.


Access

Its a long walk. Entrance doors lead into a small porch/lobby, second set of doors into a long corridor, and third set get you to the entrance doors to the room. From there, its no distance to the stage. Altenatively, you can get into the room at the far end, away from the stage, and walk down the room.


Facilities

Large low temporary stage, multi segment. Plenty of sockets behind, had a few tables on when I visited. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: over 4m


Staff

Very friendly.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Plenty of spaces all around the venue.


Access

Good. Park near rear of venue to unload, and bring gear in through the corridors. Doors can be propped open, wedges thoughtfully provided.


Facilities

Alcove along one wall. Not huge, but room is small, so minimal rig advised.


Staff

Best staff I have ever met, bar none.



Full venue details

Parking

Very awkward. Narrow gates, and only a handful if spaces. Large vans almost impossible if cars are parked on the street opposite.


Access

Poor. From the car park, it's through the bar, or carry kit along the pavement. Parking outside the entrance blocks the road totally. Tiny rigs or roadies advised.


Facilities

Shallow stage with steps, or on floor. Many options.


Staff

Superb.



Full venue details

Parking

You can park at the side to load and unload, but you'll have to move after. There is on street parking nearby, but it's restricted until 6pm, after which time it's free.


Access

Long concrete ramp up to fire exit, very smooth, not too steep.


Facilities

Immense high stage, which doesn't appear to have good access. I was instructed to use the floor near the fire exit. Warning: They're very fussy about the new floor, and will insist on all kit having rubber feet or other protection.


Staff

Let's just say I've met more pleasant and helpful staff.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent car park.


Access

One door, one flight of stairs with quarter turns. Not terribly easy.


Facilities

Small stage at one end. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Lane outside venue, two vehicles wide. Unload vehicle, and then move it to designated parking areas.


Access

Good. Straight through doors into venue.


Facilities

Small, low corner stage. Small rigs essential.


Staff

Helpful and pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Narrow. Can be congested. Possible to get near access fire doors, but not stay there after unloading.


Access

Fair. Slalom round two doors, then easy run to stage.


Facilities

Huge 5ft high stage, power everywhere, but access steps narrow and awkward.



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonably sized car park at front, theres an access road at the side leading straight to the fire doors for the function room.


Access

Brilliant. Straight through fire doors, and up to the stage.


Facilities

Superb stage, all necessary venue light switches next to the stage. - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Absolutely brilliant. Understand what DJs and acts need, and its all there for you.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Large car park.


Access

Very good. Five steps up to room, you can park your vehicle next to them. Short walk to stage.


Facilities

Good sized stage, some installed equipment sharing it. Plenty of power sockets, but whole area quite tired.


Staff

Very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent. Can park a few steps from the entrance to the lift.


Access

There is a lift for the gear, and its best to walk up the stairs to meet it, as its easier to shut the doors from outside. Lift is small, so a 4ft deckstand wont go in ready asembled.


Facilities

Usually near the kitchen entrance. Not overly generous. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Lovely.



Full venue details

Parking

Long carry usually involved for this, across the grass.


Access

Good access, just a fair distance.


Facilities

Dependent on the type of marquee hired. Usually perfectly adequate. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Lovely.



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate. Venue is at the end of a lane partly shared with the local Primary School. Addresses for the venue show more than one road name and postcode. Find the Primary School, and youre there.


Access

Excellent, when you know how. Its a difficult and awkward walk along the front of the building to the front door, especially when its wet. However, theres a door at the corner of the building, its a fire exit. Access through there is excellent, straight into the function room.


Facilities

Cramped. Only space not taken with seating is in front of the dartboard. Low ceiling as well. Small rigs essential. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Excellent, helpful and friendly.



Full venue details

Parking

Space for a vehicle next to access doors of conservatory. Huge car park adjacent to venue.


Access

Good. Through conservatory, two sets of doors which can be propped open. All dead flat and smooth, so small trolley friendly.


Facilities

Rear wall of venue. Plenty of room for the rig, venue not immense.



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonably big car park, with good access from the road.


Access

A good trolley is essential. It's twenty yards through the beer garden to the front doors, then probably a hundred yards along corridors to the stage.


Facilities

Low stage with steps at one side, lots of power points at the back, but headroom is limited on the stage.


Staff

Very very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Pretty good. Churchill suite has a dedicated car park which isn't huge.


Access

Fabulous. Park next to the fire exit, and the performance area is straight through the door.


Facilities

You have an entire back wall to choose from, with no obstacles on the floor. Large paintings on the wall behind.


Staff

Absolutely splendid, pleasant and helpful. Manager is very easy to deal with.



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonable car park at front, best access if conditions allow is over grass at the back.


Access

From front, a reasonable walk on the level. From rear, directly through fire door.


Facilities

No specific area. Small room in new building. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Good sized car park. I was allowed to park right outside the doors. There is another entrance signed as main entrance, but I didnt use that, although it was available.


Access

From the doors I used, there was an excellent ramp, and then a level twenty or thirty metre walk to the setup area. A trolley is essential, in my opinion.


Facilities

Not a lot of room available, unless you start moving furniture. Power sockets in floor for disco, perfect. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Absolutely superb. Very very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Lucky dip, really. Park in the green spaces, which are free for the club. Otherwise, you'll have to pay. It's a huge municipal car park, but getting near the access point is pot luck. You may easily have to tip the vehicle, then move it.


Access

Good. Very level, only one self closing door into the room. Very trolley friendly.


Facilities

In front of a sliding door to a storage area. Big enough for a four foot booth, and floor standing speakers. Tripods could be interesting to work with.


Staff

No.



Full venue details

Parking

Acres of space, perfect. You can drive the van to the doors virtually.


Access

Truly excellent. Very shallow ramp, wide doors which can be wedged open.


Facilities

No designated area, just section of wall opposite bar.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Large car park, and you may be able to park near the entrance.


Access

Fair. Straight into lift, which brings you straight to the dood of the function room. Short walk fro there.


Facilities

Low stage, excellent. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Huge tarmac car park, undulating somewhat. Quite a slope away from building.


Access

Excellent. No steps, only very shallow ramps, excellent for wheeled flightcases.


Facilities

Smallish stage, big enough for a 4foot booth plus speakers. Not very deep, and low ceilings mean lights can't be very high on stage.



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate. Small tarmac car park at front of venue.


Access

Very good. Choice of ramp or steps to two sets of doors which can be locked open. From there, it's a few yards to the stage.


Facilities

Nice stage, only drawback is the overhead at the front of the stage is low.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, lovely helpful people.



Full venue details

Parking

No dedicated car park, limited on street parking. Large car parks nearby, so no problem.


Access

Very good. Park in front of the building, through the automatic doors, and straight into the room.


Facilities

Low stage, plentiful power, lowish ceiling. Plenty of space for kit.


Staff

Staff not present.



Full venue details

Parking

Pretty good. Car park is a touch narrow , but workable enough. Best access for unloading is disabled bays, then move your vehicle.


Access

Good. Ramp into venue, through two sets of self closing doors, across to low stage. Huge rigs not advisable, room and stage aren't huge. Entrance door may have the electronic lock on, so you may have to be let back in if you let it close. Staff can disable it, so not an issue.


Facilities

Low corner stage. Steps come up in the middle, so rig placement needs thought.


Staff

Excellent, very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park with excellent lighting. Unloading is in committee car park, and you may be able to park there.


Access

Al flat, but a long walk. Small trolley wheels will snag on uneven flagstones. Good trolley essential.


Facilities

Very reasonable. Corner of room facing towards bar and seating. Not a huge room, so massive rigs not needed.


Staff

Excellent, very pleasant and helpful



Full venue details

Parking

Limited, use disabled spaces to unload vehicle, and move afterwards.


Access

Poor. Steep, narrow internal staircase. Congested by guests on leaving.


Facilities

Corner of room. Small rigs recommended, as space is limited.


Staff

Fine, but not overly knowledgeable.



Full venue details

Parking

Very small car park at rear, quite tricky

Staff

Helpful and pleasant staff.



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate car park, can be crowded if a match is on.

Very good. Through main door, and no further doors to setup area. All level.


Facilities

Corner of room near cupboard containing venue system. Not a huge room, so smallish rigs advised.


Staff

Absolutely excellent



Full venue details

Parking

Busy car park. You have yo park in the presidents space to unload, or just pull across as best you can.


Access

Long walk!! Trolleys or Sherpas needed. Over sixty yards to the performance area.


Facilities

Corner of the room, low ceiling. All carpeted, so no designated area. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Lovely. Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

For the Ocean Suite, use the overflow car park, which is very large and underused. It is however a sixty yard walk to the access point for the room. If possible, unload in the swimming pool members bays, and move afterwards.


Access

All flat, hard well drained path which goes all round the building. A torch and a good trolley are essential, because it's a long way, and a small section of path is unlit.


Facilities

No dedicated area, room is multi sided, so there are many choices.


Staff

Function manager was absolutely fine, very pleasant and very good to deal with. Efficient and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Car park quite small. Pay and display, unless youre staying at the hotel.


Access

Only poor. Two sets of steps, one fire door, and two internal doors.


Facilities

Theres a stage, but I was set up at the side on the floor. No problems. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Park near the bistro entrance, not the garden centre.


Access

It's a long distance to the performance area, so trolley and preferably some help is vital. It's all firm and flat, fortunately.


Facilities

Far end of room, against back wall.


Staff

Excellent, very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Tiny venue car park, but there is a much larger one across the road.


Access

Good. Best way is through the fire exit , and across the lounge. All flat right to the stage.


Facilities

High stage, with control of some of the venue lights. Plentiful power, and loads of space.



Full venue details

Parking

Superb. Splendid new car park, acres of space, and you can unload next to the door. Move your van afterwards, as it blocks a security camera.


Access

Very good. a short walk from the entrance to the setup area.

Full venue details

Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Large car parks.


Access

Very good. Park outside fire doors, straight to stage.


Facilities

Very good indeed. Large stage., good headroom.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Keep the hotel on your left at all times, and life will be easy. The best car park is at the rear, and you can usually park in the hatched delivery bay.


Access

Fairly good. You park on the pavement opposite a gate which leads to the fire exit for the function room. Once unloaded, you do another circular tour, back to the car park.


Facilities

Quite good. Corner of room, near back wall.


Staff

Absolutely brilliant, especially reception.



Full venue details

Parking

Superb. Large level car park, with the fire doors for the function room facing into it. Perfect.


Access

Excellent. The fire doors lead directly to the stage, a walk of a few paces. Only minor niggle is that the steps to the stage are very awkward to negotiate when carrying gear, too narrow, too shallow, and with a quarter turn leading to a narrow walkway.


Facilities

Large high stage, with plenty of headroom. Stage appears to be storage area for surplus chairs and tables. Loads of power points. - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: over 4m


Staff

Very nice in the main.



Full venue details

Parking

On street, can be close to fire escape if you're lucky. Quite a few spaces available nearby.


Access

Adequate. External metal fire escape, quite shallow and reasonable.


Facilities

Stage which can be cluttered with chairs and other impediments.


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good, unless there's a cricket match on, in which case space can be a bit limited.


Access

Very good, but not perfect. You can park very near the door, but access is narrow, and the entrance door is also narrow. Short walk from door to setup area.


Facilities

Most of the back wall is available, but it's customary to use the corner away from the door. There's adequate room for a decent sized rig.


Staff

Very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Nice tarmac car park. Try to get close to the kitchen door.


Access

Pretty good. Simple matter to get through the small room next to the kitchen, and into the main hall.


Facilities

Small low corner stage. Plenty of room for a normal rig, but room isn't huge, so large rigs not necessary.


Staff

Didn't meet any, so can't comment.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited. Very small designated area, but loads of space around the field.


Access

Ramp into room, at opposite end to dancefloor.


Facilities

Decent sized area, limited power. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Like to be out in good time after finish.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited, and not adjacent to venue. Staff allowed me to reverse up to the venue to load and unload, so not a big issue.


Access

Good. Down a corridor to far end of room, all dead level, and easy.


Facilities

In front of the telly on the wall. Plenty of room, plenty of power. Perfectly fine.


Staff

Absolutely wonderful, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Small car park, awkwardly situated for entrance. Parking on street can be nearer the dors.


Access

All on the flat, but through three doorways. Not ideal.


Facilities

Small stage, power at each side. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Helpful and pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good, when you know. There's a large car park at the front, but you want to go round the side to the rear, where there's a smaller car park. Park next to the fire exit, and it's a good load in.


Access

Pretty good. Only one small step ( kerb ) to negotiate, and you're in the function room. If it's dark it requires great care, because of the step. The step also makes trolleys hard to use, but they're not vital anyway.


Facilities

Room can be divided by curtains, so you could be set up anywhere. There's likely to be ample room wherever you are.


Staff

Very friendly.



Full venue details

Parking

Small car park at front, but it's likely that you'll be in secure parking at the side of the building.


Access

Trolley needed. The place isn't designed as an entertainment venue, and depending on where you're setting up can be a long walk. It's a warehouse with plywood walls, some of which move.


Facilities

Awkward. Unless you're in " The Woolpack " there's no designated entertainment area. The area off the Woolpack is triangular, matt black walls, and has one power point. If you set up on the back wall, your cables will cross a huge doorway. Not easy.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, an absolute pleasure to deal with.



Full venue details

Parking

There is a good sized car park shared by adjacent venues, but you need to drive down to the fire exit, where you can gain access.


Access

Through fire exit, past ladies toilets. Short distance, but very tight turn, so a bit awkward.


Facilities

Small room, small dancefloor, doors either side. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very helpful, very friendly.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited hard car park, but lots of grass suitable for parking if necessary.


Access

Good. Best access from large doors at rear, although front door is closer, but more awkward.


Facilities

Corner of room, with light controls behind you.


Staff

Excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Adequately sized car park adjacent to venue.


Access

All flat, but a thirty yard walk to the stage. It may be possible to park down the side of the building, which would mean you enter directly in front of the stage, but not all vehicles may be suitable for this, as its not a paved surface.


Facilities

Low stage, enough room for disco and small band - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Perfectly pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent, but not obvious. The main tarmac car park is at the front, but access to the function room is best from driving past the clubhouse to the beer garden.


Access

Superb. Park next to the beer garden, through double doors, and straight onto stage.


Facilities

Corner stage, not huge, but workable. Not the greatest headroom, but again workable enough.


Staff

Superb, very helpful and pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Very reasonable. Very narrow entrance to the street, which widens out into a fair sized car park for the venue.


Access

Through fire exit, up three stone steps, very reasonable. I was able to park the car right next to these.


Facilities

Plenty of choice, small room, you could go across the corner, or along either adjacent wall. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful. Sticklers for finishing on time, due to noise constraints with nearby houses.



Full venue details

Parking

Poor. There's a small car park next to the pub, but it's got prohibition notices all over. Allegedly a £100 fine for using it without permission.


Access

Not great. Cobbled courtyard leads to function room, which can be accessed through the pub, or along the courtyard. Twenty plus yard walk, with two steps.


Facilities

Corner of the room, quite suitable for the purpose.


Staff

Friendly enough, music must finish at midnight on the dot, and a swift exit is appreciated. No problem really.



Full venue details

Parking

Best parking is at rear of complex, where you can use the fire door, which is straight into room. Don't forget to log your vehicle registration into a terminal to avoid fines.


Access

Superb. Through the door, and you're in.


Facilities

Usually end wall, close to power sockets.


Staff

Absolutely excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Multiple car parks.


Access

Disabled ramp available for unloading to lift. Good trolley very useful. Once upstairs, three doors to negotiate.


Facilities

Acres of space, lots of power supplies, lots of choice, dependent on room layout used. Room has movable dividers, so you may sometimes be able to set up while rest of room is in use.


Staff

Excellent, very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good, multiple car parks. Remember to log your registration in at a terminal, to avoid fines.


Access

Option of going through the main doors, or fire exits straight into room. Steps or ramp depending on where you park.


Facilities

Variable. Room has movable dividers, so you could be along side or end wall.


Staff

Excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonable. Long narrow car park, with access to front doors opf function room.


Access

All flat, Trolley a big advantage,


Facilities

No stage area. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Friendly staff.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Small, narrow access, and tricky. On street parking at a premium at any time of day. Car park at rear gives best access.


Access

If you can get your vehicle in the car park, access to room is very good. Straight through fire exit.


Facilities

Small corner stage, with low but workable headroom.


Staff

Some lovely, some not so lovely.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park, which may be full of golfers at peak times. Worst case scenario is to unload gear, and move vehicle.


Access

Park near the metal fire escape to unload. Wide treads, and shallow slope, so very good in dry weather. Was unlit when I left, but usable with care. Quite a long trek up the steps. Once at the top, it's a short walk to the setup area.


Facilities

There's a low stage, and two raised areas at the side. Stage may have things stored on it, so may not be available. If not, set up on raised area, or dance floor as you wish.


Staff

Very helpful, and very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

First class. Huge tarmac car park, very well maintained. Can park next to access fire doors.


Access

Excellent. Small ramp into venue, through double fire doors, which can be securely fastened open. It should be scored a 5, but I can\'t because of the ramp.


Facilities

Well designed stage, with plentiful power. Access steps at side behind a door. Low enough to place kit on and then walk up steps. Lots of power sockets at rear of stage.



Full venue details

Parking

Poor. Small car park behind pub, but you have to drive onto the grass to get to the gate near the beer garden.


Access

Flat, but more than one door, at least two of which will be locked initially.


Facilities

Low stage, low ceiling, but loads of power points, and a light for the DJ. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2m or less


Staff

Very good.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Decent sized car park, you can drive up to the entrance.


Access

Very fair. Either three wide steps to the door, or disabled ramp which is a lot further. Good access through doors into venue.

Corner under television. Slightly pushed for space, but not too bad. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park. Its usually possible to park near the entrance.


Access

Two flights of stairs, with landings. Far from ideal, especially with doors top and bottom.


Facilities

Cramped. Usually at the far end of the room, near the pool table. Large rigs not recommended. Room is relatively long and narrow, with bar at opposite end to disco. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Its not often possible to gain access very early. Otherwise, staff are fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate. Parked vehicles may impede access somewhat.


Access

Along a hard path at the side of the building. Thirty metre walk.


Facilities

Small room, pool table pushed in a corner is a nuisance. Minimal kit needed, dance area quite small, but bar area is larger. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Park on single yellow line at side to unload through fire doors. Long stay car park immediately opposite.


Access

Very good. Across pavement to doors, and a few steps to stage.


Facilities

Excellent. Large stage with steps. - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Small, but good car park. It should be possible to park by the door and unload, then move the vehicle.


Access

Good. All flat, short walk into function room.


Facilities

Small low portable stage. Set up at one end of room. Large rigs not advisable, room is quite small.



Full venue details

Parking

You can park outside the entrance doors, but you then have to move your vehicle, as it impedes access to the car park at the rear.


Access

I have put that the room is on the ground floor, when actually its on the first floor. The car park at the rear is at the same level though, so the access is absolutely flat and level. Staff will peg back the security door to allow access, and its then fairly easy.


Facilities

End of a room, in front of window. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very nice.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park, fully tarmacced.


Access

There are different choices for access. Through the front doors is marred by five steep steps with narrow handrails. Once you're up there, it's all flat and easy, but a long walk. It's worth putting a trolley at the top, and using it.


Facilities

Corner of room, near bar. Huge rigs a disadvantage, small ones recommended.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Good sized car park at rear, or on street parking at front. If you use the stairs for access, this could severely hinder access too the car park for other users.


Access

Two choices. Park on the road, at the front of the venue and have level access through four sets of self-closing doors, or use the side entrance, which means a flight of stairs. Parking your vehicle to use the side entrance could hamper other vehicles access to the car park at the rear though.


Facilities

Small stage, Low headroom on the stage, but high ceiling in the room. An abundance of RCD protected power outlets on stage. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2m or less


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Poor to just passable. The smallest car park Ive ever seen, not big enough for a large van. Very busy before 5pm, as its used by local office workers. Nearby on street parking is one hour free, no return at all, until 6pm, when its unrestricted.


Access

Poor again. External steel fire escape, leading to coded security door at top, and an internal door to room.


Facilities

Cramped. Smallest dance floor Ive ever seen. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 3-4m

Very good. Huge car park, best to unload near doors, and move vehicle after.


Access

Very good. Trolley friendly ramp, doors which can be locked back. It;s not a long walk straight to setup area.


Facilities

Next to power socket in middle of back wall. Lots of space for larger rigs, if desired.


Staff

Lovely staff, very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

There is a dedicated car park not too far away.


Access

Access is by tracks in the woods, covered in wood chippings. If wet, you may not be able to get along them, as they may be blocked off to save them being chewed up.


Facilities

In itself, very good. Permanent booth, with shelves. Unfortunately, while it has a roof, it doesn't have a full complement of walls, and can be very draughty indeed.



Full venue details

Parking

Big car park, can be busy early on. The most suitable spaces for unloading are reserved for Golf Club officials, sadly.


Access

Far from ideal. Five steps down from the car park to the electronically locked security front door. From there, its a short walk to the lift. Do not stack kit against the far wall as you get in, as this will become the door at the next level. From there, its a short walk to the performance area.


Facilities

In front of a trophy cabinet, at one end of the room. Doors either side of it, which may or may not be in use. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Absolutely brilliant. Lovely people.



Full venue details

Parking

Decent sized car park at one end of the building.


Access

It's fifty yards from the car park to the setup area. Trolley friendly concrete path helps a little.


Facilities

Recently refurbished after a flood, very nice decor. Very low corner stage, just big enough for a four foot booth, although if you wish, there's an entire back wall to set up along. Headroom above stage is hampered by ceiling beams.


Staff

Very friendly. Do be aware that if you're told it's a 1am finish, that's when you're out of the building by, not when you stop the music.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Large car park at rear.


Access

Very good. six large steps up to terrace outside function room. You can drive your vehicle right up to the steps.

Parking

Limited


Access

Two steps into building, two separate doors to get into room. Tricky when cold, as staff dont seem to like you latching the doors open.


Facilities

Good sized stage in a corner, with railings. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Pleasant enough



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Smallish car park at rear of main one.


Access

Very reasonable. Either along tarmac and steps into fire door, or across grassy slope, which is much shorter. From there, all flat and no doors to setup area.


Facilities

The ante room is wide and shallow. Set up along back wall, and you'll have space to the sides, but probably impinge onto dance floor. Booth may not be level because of this, you may wish to take small pieces of wood to level the booth.


Staff

Excellent. Very laid back.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park at front.


Access

Very good. Use the goods access entrance, which is separate from the hotel entrance, and you can park next to the access doors. This brings you in past the bar and kitchen.


Facilities

Middle of room, against wall. Good placement.


Staff

Superb, couldn't have been more helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited, and a little random.


Access

Fair to good. You can get a vehicle to the entrance, but only to unload. Easier to park at bottom of steps in car park, and stay there.


Facilities

Big stage, with power round walls. When I went, it was full of band kit, so I used floor in front of stage, absolutely fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent, you can drive right up to the ramp by the main doors.


Access

Large ramp at front, with gentle slope. This leads straight into main hall. A trolley makes this very easy. Gear will then have to be lifted onto the stage, or there are steps at on side.


Facilities

Large stage, power at both sides, curtains if needed. - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park, bays near access ramp are disabled bays.


Access

Fair. Shallow full width ramp to two sets of double doors, and then up to the high stage. Good trolley essential. There is another shorter option from the far end of the building, but it involves stairs and multiple doors.


Facilities

Large stage, as much room as you could wish for.


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park, often busy.


Access

If gate is unlocked, superb access through fire doors at side. If gate locked, access is up ramp at front, through front doors, and through the room itself. Pretty much a nightmare.

Not at all pleasant or helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park at rear, mind the large potholes. It's possible to drive close to function room to unload, and return to car park.


Access

Excellent. Drive up near to fire exit, all paved, level and smooth. Put your vehicle in car park after unloading.


Facilities

Corner of room, next to power sockets, just in front of TV. Good amount of space, reasonable ceiling height.


Staff

Absolutely perfect.



Full venue details

Parking

Car park is a good size, but can be busy. Venue opens for breakfast, and can have a lot of guests early on, so car park space can be limited.


Access

Superb, if you can park near door. It may be worth moving vehicle as spaces appear.


Facilities

Bliss. Colour wash and moving heads fitted, so no light show needed, if you wish. No PA either, as you're given two signal leads to the venue PA, controlled by the bar staff.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, couldn't be more helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent. Large, well lit tarmac car park.


Access

Not too bad. It's possible to fit Transit sized vans through a special space in the bollards, and up to the automatic doors. A few yards to the lift, through some slightly awkward doors, and across the room.


Facilities

Interesting. All discos go in the far corner, fifteen yards from the dancefloor, with a pillar in between. Not ideal. Low ceiling too, which doesn't help at all in this respect.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Drop off at front; adequate parking to side and rear


Access

Small concrete ramp in to room


Facilities

Small setup area BUT there is a DJ booth available for use


Staff

Good staff



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate. You can drive from the main park to nearer the doors.


Access

Not ideal. Bollards prevent you from driving to the doors, so it's fifteen yards to the doors, twenty yards plus to the second doors, few steps to the third doors, and then another twenty yards to the stage. Sadly, there are four steps down to the stage area which make trolleys of limited use.


Facilities

Fairly high stage, power points everywhere, very good indeed


Staff

Fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Big gravel car park near access.


Access

Good, but a shame you can't get the vehicle near the doors. Steps into room, then dance floor area immediately on left.


Facilities

Compact. Small rig advised, you will have a tiny area to work in, but the room is large, so can hold many guests.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Huge tarmac car park, all round the building. Park at rear, next to access fire doors.


Access

Fair. Very good to get into the room, but the stairs to the high stage are really narrow and awkward.


Facilities

Big high stage, bit low on headroom.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park, can be crowded early on due to other sports centre users.


Access

Very good. Two big doors to get to the room, all flat and level. About twenty yards. Trolley an advantage, but not essential. Park in a disabled bay, and move after unloading.


Facilities

Stage. Waist high, very clean and tidy, access to house lights as well. - width available: 4-5m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Absolutely brilliant. Lovely.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Park round the rear of the venue, and use a fire exit near the stairs and lift.


Access

Quite reasonable. There is a service lift, but be careful not to place items against the wall, as they'll rub against it. The lift is very slow, and slightly awkward. Best to use it for bulky items, and carry small ones up the stairs.


Facilities

Corner of room, under lowest part of ceiling. Still sufficient height for overhead. This part of the area is somewhat isolated from the main area, so can be hard to drag guests in.


Staff

Very friendly.



Full venue details

Parking

Very very good. Large public car park adjacent to venue, no restrictions.

Parking

Excellent. Large, well maintained car park, with hard paving up to the door.

Parking

Excellent. Well maintained large car park. Beware ending up at the wrong side of the railway, as some sat navs will take you there.

Excellent. Beautiful paved pathway, very smooth. Doors can be wedged open, it's a short walk to the performance area.


Facilities

A little alcove near the door. Large rigs would be a tight fit, small ones recommended.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Barely adequate for unloading, car park a tad cramped. You may find vehicles parked in the parking bays you wish to unload in.


Access

Flat, but a long way. Trolleys essential.


Facilities

Plenty of room to set up, but beware: the floor is like a trampoline. Large speaker stacks can be unstable because of this. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Not too bad. There's a space to park near the doors to unload. Once unloaded, put your vehicle in the main park.


Access

Not great. Two sets of doors which can't be propped open, then a narrow corridor with tight turns, rendering trolleys useless. Long awkward carry on this one, I'm afraid.


Facilities

No designated area, just next to a wall near the dancefloor.


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent. You can park next to the fire doors leading into the room.


Access

Very good. Through two doors, and straight into room. Dead flat, no obstacles.


Facilities

Slightly offset from main room, but not at all bad.


Staff

Very good.



Full venue details

Parking

Not great. Good sized car park, but narrow and tapering towards the venue. Can't get vehicles near the entrance.


Access

Poor. Either a thirty yard trek along a paved area to the main door, which is narrow and awkward, and effectively unusable due to tables and chairs once inside, or fifty yards to the fire exit, over a wicked slope at one point, but leads onto the stage.


Facilities

Far from ideal. It's six inches high, and more of a darts oche. The headroom is very very low, and there's an RSJ lowering it further in front of you. The only saving grace, is there's a power point in the corner.


Staff

Pleasant enough.

Full venue details

Parking

On street, so pot luck. If you can get a space nearby it's not too bad. Restrictions end early, so that's workable.


Access

Interesting. Across the pavement, through the bar, through the restaurant, up the spiral staircase, across the landing and up the steps. Not as bad as it sounds, but far from ideal.


Facilities

Tiny. Corner of small room.


Staff

Excellent, absolutely excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Double yellows at front, very few parking spaces nearby. Best access to function room is from a narrow lane at the back. You reverse up to the beer garden, and go up the fire escape, into the function room.


Access

External fire escape.

Very small stage, with low frontage overhead., making it difficult to use lights on the crossbar. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Very friendly and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Road to venue is very narrow, and theres only a tiny sign at the end. Big car park, loads of space.


Access

Good. If you pull along the road leading to the fishing lake, you can get in by smallish double doors next to the setup area. You may have to move your vehicle for anglers, as it blocks the road. There are small steps in this way, entering by the main entrance is level, but many doors and turns, quite awkward.


Facilities

Big bay window, plenty of space for a normal sized rig, speakers will have to be in the window as well, as theres not much room to spare in front due to tables. Headroom in the window is not brilliant. - width available: 3-4m


Staff

Really friendly, nice folk.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park at the end of a very long lane. Plenty of space, but vehicles may be blocking access to the doors you want.


Access

Through passageway to function room. Fairly short distance, a few good steps, and/or a good ramp involved.

When I was there, the performance area was the pool table. Space is limited. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very friendly and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Poor. Smallish car park at front, access to unloading area by a narrow alley at back. Very tight with a big van, bins and trailers are obstacles to negotiate.

Full venue details

Parking

Reasonably sized car park at rear of venue.


Access

Pretty good. Half a dozen big shallow steps into venue, leading directly to performance area.


Facilities

Cramped. They want you to set up in the chair storage area, and the curtains dont help at all. Far from ideal, a standard Ultimax/DSB takes up most of the room, and speakers are tricky to place because of it. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Pleasant enough, but some confusion over preferred set up areas.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent. Large car park, with dedicated , covered unloading area. This is a public area, so you may have to wait if other suppliers are using it.


Access

Reasonable. Six high steps up to entrance doors, but once up there it's all flat, with wide doors which can be fixed open. You're likely to be taking lots of kit here, so good trolley essential.


Facilities

No dedicated area, but the area by the room dividers has multiple electrical sockets, and is a good place.


Staff

Very good.

Busy car park, spaces may be limited at busy periods.

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Multiple car parks, on various levels, due to slope of site.


Access

Three car parks, one which accesses the room from a lower floor directly into function room, one which is same level, but access through bar, and it's a long way, with doorways.


Facilities

Very good. Six inch high stage, very wide, but no power on it. Long extensions needed, must be taped down or cable protectors used.


Staff

Very helpful, very mindful of noise issues. Sound levels will be monitored regularly with a hand held meter.



Full venue details

Parking

Fair. Car park is long and narrow, so parking near the entrance congests the car park somewhat. If there's a match on, spaces will be at a premium.


Access

Pretty good. Up a small ramp, and only a few steps into the function room.


Facilities

Interesting. There's a " booth " overlooking the dance floor, it's wide and narrow to get into. It's difficult to find room for a stand of your own, and difficult to find space for your lighting stand. Best bet is lights which can be used freestanding.


Staff

Perfectly fine.



Full venue details

Parking

Nicely adequate. Bigger car park at rear, once you've unloaded.


Access

Very good. Park to unload next to the outer doors, and through one set of internal doors, which can be pegged back. Short distance to setup area. Then move your vehicle to the car park at the rear.


Facilities

Very low ceiling in setup area only. Roof has glass panels, and room can be very bright when sunny. No blackout options apparent.


Staff

Lovely folk, very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Options are to park in the main car park and fight your way through the entire building to the function room, or drive over the grass at the front to the path into this room. Could be dodgy in wet weather.


Access

As above, good if you can get over the grass. Bad if you have to go through the whole building.


Facilities

No designated area, just pick a space along the wall.


Staff

No staff present at function.



Full venue details

Parking

Fair sized tarmac car park, on a slope.


Access

Two choices. Park the vehicle near the entrance, which is on a slope. Through three sets of double doors, it\'s a good distance to function room. The better option is to park on the wide pavement round the corner, and use the fire exit at that side, much shorter distance, and no extra doors.


Facilities

A tad cramped. There\'s an alcove with low ceiling height intended for the disco, with lots of power sockets. If there aren\'t tables near, you could set up just in front of the alcove, but smallish rigs recommended to be safe.

Parking

Huge car park, little bit long and narrow. All good tarmac.


Access

Fair. Twenty metre plus to door, then into function room. Path slopes steeply down to venue, so trolleys may be an issue.

Parking

Huge car park, but very congested and narrow where you need to unload.

Parking

Interesting. Single lane access to club, small car park which is very bad at closing time. You may easily be boxed in by taxis and other vehicles.

If the weather is dry, you may be able to drive vehicle to far end of building to unload. Otherwise, it's a long walk down a concrete path, and through the main building.

Interesting. If venue isn't open, wait in the car park until venue staff open the dedicated parking area near function room. The venue is security fenced, so this is not accessible until unlocked by staff.

Alcove at end of room, low ceiling, unless you come forward into room. Not a huge room, but ceiling in main part is very high. Huge rigs not needed, especially as you must leave access to Ladies toilet at one side of the rig.


Staff

Very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Reasonable sized car park.


Access

Good. Two sets of double doors which can be fixed open, and straight across room to low stage in corner.


Facilities

Fairly small low stage in corner. Lots of power points, but also the dreaded sound limiter apparently controlling them. Not sure how it's set up, as no venue staff present, and they hadn't mentioned it to customers, so may be set on monitor, I don't know. Rolling off a lot of bass helps a lot.


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. There's a big car park, but you can back your van up to the fire doors on what is technically a pavement, and usually you can leave it there.


Access

All dead flat, and very trolley friendly. Setup area is at the far side of a sports hall, so fairly long trek, hence need for trolley.


Facilities

No dedicated area, centre of back wall.


Staff

Excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Not too bad . On street parking, no dedicated parking for venue.


Access

Six fairly steep stone steps from pavement to a single door which opens outwards, making access tricky. Alternatively, you can go through double doors, up internal steps and a second set of double doors, and have a longer carry to the room.


Facilities

Small stage in corner of room. Adequate. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very helpful and pleasant.

Plenty of room available, no problems at all. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Friendly enough.



Full venue details

Parking

Small, tidy car park at rear.


Access

Fair. Along concrete path, and enter through fire exit. This will bring you into the function room. There are two small steps which make trolleys difficult to use.


Facilities

Usually a corner of room opposite the entrance. Space may be limited if a lot of tables are in use.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park. Best access to function room is through fire doors at end.


Access

Not bad. Tarmac in car park doesnt extend to fire doors, you have to park next to a flower bed at the end of the building, and walk round that to get access.


Facilities

Very small quadrant stage at far end of room from access point. Not a lot of space. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Absolutely fine, very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

You can park right outside the front doors, on the wide pavement. You then have to move your vehicle to the free car park a few yards away, once youve unloaded.


Access

Excellent. Two sets of big doors, and all flat and level to the stage.


Facilities

A small stage, which is used for other things. There was an amateur dramatic set on there when I went. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Poor. Double yellow lines outside venue, pay and display car park opposite, although that seems to be free after 6pm weekends. Unload on double yellows and move vehicle to car park.


Access

Twenty yards to venue from pavement. Access via very narrow stairs, with a quarter turn halfway up.


Facilities

Wooden floored section of room, in an alcove, so slightly hidden from guests. Not ideal. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Nice helpful staff.

No official setup area, just in one corner of the room - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very nice staff, very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Good. Adequate tarmac park, you can back up next to a fire exit to unload. From there it's a long way to the stage area, good trolley required.


Access

Reasonable. All flat, bar a two inch step in a doorway. Full length of a huge shed to the stage.


Facilities

Vast, just like the venue. Main stage is four feet high, with a lower level as well. There's also a small corner stage as well. The venue is fitted with a full lighting rig for all manner of performances, but staff members who know how to operate it fully may not be present.


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Big tarmac park, but areas near the club can be very wet/muddy.


Access

Level. Many options. Really long trolley down the front path, bit tricky that. Really short carry across function room, from fire exit, but the access to it is currently a swamp, and barricaded off ( Feb 2022) .Best option is back entrance, and a sensible carry past the bar. Still a tad muddy at this one., but workable.


Facilities

Bijou. Corner low stage, with furniture on walls. Small room, small rig recommended, especially as headroom is limited.



Full venue details

Parking

Very big car park, plenty of room.

Parking

Huge tarmac car park. Splendid.


Access

Trolley essential. Fairly flat and level into the function room, but a few little ledges in doorways or floor chaanges.


Facilities

Great. Huge stage, acres of headroom. Little short on sockets, but not bad.


Staff

Lovely helpful staff, absolutely superb.



Full venue details

Parking

Not too bad. Don't park in the big car park, drive up to the building, where you may be able to get near enough to unload, and possibly leave the vehicle.


Access

Could be better. Spoiled by some fairly narrow, steep steps. Not helped by the fact that they face away from the car park.


Facilities

Corner of room, loads of power points, and a lighting control panel, which you may use on request. It's not high grade, cutting edge, but it's fit for purpose.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, superb.



Full venue details

Parking

Magnificent. Acres of space, all hard standing, but not tarmac.


Access

Very very good. Multiple options, and you can get the vehicle close to whichever entrance is used. High thresholds mean trolleys have to be loaded inside the venue.


Facilities

It's a blank canvas. Power points are in limited supply, so set up near to one.


Staff

Only seen at close of play, since you hire the venue, not the staff. They were perfectly pleasant and helpful, and keen to adhere to a midnight finish.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good, but can get very busy.


Access

All on the flat, up to steps to get in. Trolley of limited use, only to get gear to door. Can only get vehicle twenty yards from door.


Facilities

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Low stage, with frontage separating guests. Power beyond your wildest dreams.



Full venue details

Parking

Big car park, but not necessarily possible to park near venue.


Access

Trolley friendly, and by heavens, youll need one. Its a fifty yard plus walk to the entrance to the function room.


Facilities

Very good. Very close to entrance doors. No specific area, but plenty of suitable choice. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Hard car park, access possible over grass to get nearer function room if dry.


Access

Adequate at worst, if grass is dry enough to carry a vehicle, excellent.


Facilities

Small area in corner of small room. Venue ony suitable for small functions, minimal kit required. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Staff only present to lock and unlock venue for the teen functions. Very pleasant, but like quick rig/de-rig of gear. Half an hour is the stated amount.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Good sized car park, with reasonable access


Access

Not fantastic. Three big stone steps at front, and then a small porch with turns through narrow doors. Straight into function room after that.


Facilities

Cramped. In a corner, under a shelf. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Adequate. The venue is down a lane round the cricket ground, but the sign at the end say Social Club. There is parking on the wider part of the lane near the venue, but unloading gear can cause a bottleneck.


Access

Good, if you can park near the entrance. Short walk, one step.


Facilities

Interesting. You're actually setting up in the changing room, which is separated from the main room by folding doors. Once they're folded, you're looking into the main room.


Staff

Excellent, very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Really big vans may not fit through the narrow access at the rear. There's a very small car park behind the building


Access

Very good, but if you park outside the access doors you block the narrow lane totally. If you park out of the way in the car park, there's a ramp at the end, so even that's decent access. As you go through the doors, it leads directly onto the big stage.


Facilities

Excellent. High stage with curtains, so if guests are in the venue, you can enter separately from the rear, and set up on stage behind the curtains. Low overhead at front of stage, but not unduly problematical.


Staff

Very helpful on phone, didn't meet at venue.



Full venue details

Parking

Park in one of the numerous disabled bays outside the venue to unload, then move the vehicle further along the street.


Access

Two pairs of doors, then a very steep set of stairs down to the room. Its a long way down, and seems even further back up. Minimal kit recommended.


Facilities

Corner of room, next to the dreaded sound limiter. Multiple power sockets, some of which are dedicated to the audio, and controlled by the limiter. - width available: at least 5m - height clearance: over 4m


Staff

Helpful enough.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent tarmac car park. Access to both sides of the venue.


Access

Best access from near disabled ramp. Either use ramp, or up two steps straight into room.


Facilities

Corner of room, with switches for installed basic lighting effects adjacent. Also, jack sockets to passive speakers on wall.



Full venue details

Parking

Interesting. Car park is blocked by a lockable bollard, and opened by caretaker when the hall is opened.


Access

Two choices, either in through the front door and along the corridor, or if tables and chairs are in place, park along the side, and use fire exit, which gets you straight into the performance area. Steps involved, so trolley no use, and you can't get transit sized vans right up to the doors.


Facilities

No designated area, I was asked to use back wall of venue.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park, but spaces near access to venue are limited, and tend to fill up early.


Access

Very reasonable. Just beware that the entrance is not available after 11pm, so you ( should ) exit a very long way round.


Facilities

Low stage facing across the room. Plenty of power sockets, reasonable headroom on stage, but low ceiling blocks a lot of light. Perhaps uplights might be better.


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park at front, narrowing considerably where the entrance to the function room is. Could be tricky at peak times.


Access

Pretty good. Shallow ramp, leading to external doors, and one set internal, which can all be fixed open.


Facilities

Small, low narrow stage. Plentiful power points, sound limiter on wall, but power sockets on stage worked without switching it on.


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited. Usually best to unload kit and move vehicle to a large free car park nearby. Large vans are a liability here, very tight for space.


Access

Fair. Lift is near access doors, and from there there are fire doors to go through to get to Maple Room. Small rigs advised.


Facilities

Plenty or room along back wall.


Staff

Absolutely outstanding, superb.



Full venue details

Parking

On street parking is handiest, but very limited. Limited parking overall.


Access

Not bad. If you can park on street next to access door, it's a short walk to setup area.


Facilities

Limited space, small rig needed.


Staff

Pleasant.



Full venue details

Parking

Very tricky for large vans. You can drive close to the access doors, but its narrow, with a ninety degre bend in. One vehicle fills it. Theres a reasonable amount of onstreetparking for guests

Small low stage in the corner, abundance of power sockets. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 3-4m

Spaces marked next to access doors


Access

Straight through doors into hall. All flat, all level. Trolley advisable.


Facilities

Whole of back wall, next to connectors to venue PA. Use stereo jack socket for music.


Staff

Excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Small car park, made trickier by the fact that best access to the function room is in the narrowest corner, with a dangerous drop off if you go too far.


Access

Care needed. Steep step from car park to patio, and similar one from patio to room.


Facilities

Corner of L-shaped room, bar is at far end of the longest leg, which can mean punters being absent from the room for long periods.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park, but you create a terrible bottleneck if you choose the handiest place to unload.


Access

Not great. Ramp into building, then through three rooms into room at back. Calling it a function room is misleading, as it's tiny. No internal doors to contend with, but it's narrow and twisty.


Facilities

Corner of a small room. Smallest possible rigs advised. Also adaptability, as you may be playing anywhere in the pub, but nowhere is good for setting up a disco.


Staff

Very nice.



Full venue details

Parking

Excellent car park, well marked and well maintained.


Access

Slightly tricky. Up a short, steep ramp into the building, and through the next room up a small step. Use of trolley very tricky, best bet is extra pair of hands.


Facilities

Nice setup area, with permanent dancefloor. Sadly, where you set up is hidden from the body of the room, so unless you place at least one speaker at the other side of the wall, you will not be heard well in the main room. Very tricky.


Staff

Absolutely top notch, couldn't be better.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Adequately sized car park.


Access

Gently sloping paths, and a couple of doors. With a trolley its not bad.


Facilities

End of a room, slightly cramped, but not bad. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Quite good. Fair sized car park, but function room doors open onto it in a corner, and access may be tight if vehicles are parked opposite them.


Access

Good, but not great. Three double doors to function room, a couple of small steps, and dancefloor is at far side of room, so tables and chairs are an obstacle.


Facilities

Corner of function room, opposite the bar.


Staff

Very professional.

Small oddly shaped car park.


Access

Very good, park near fire doors to unload, and move vehicle afterwards.

Corner of small room, small rigs needed.


Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Decent car park at rear. Sadly, it's a bit narrow for vans at unloading point to function room, especially if others park close.


Access

Very good, if you can get your van near the doors. Through doors, aloong corridor, and into function room. Trolley a big help, as it's absolutely flat and level.


Facilities

There's a high stage, but it was in use for other things when I was there, so set up in a corner. No problem at all.


Staff

Very friendly, very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Limited, and as you unload, it narrows down access to the car park. Less than ideal.


Access

Fairly good. All absolutely flat, without any risers in doorways. Two sets of doors, and the length of the function room. Trolley very helpful.


Facilities

Small stage, with some lights, and plentiful power. Headroom a little lacking, but very workable.


Staff

Very helpful, but keen to go home at end of night.



Full venue details

Parking

Can be a little tight. Long narrow car park, spaces near function room at a premium.

Excellent. Straight in through fire exit, and you're in the set up area. Only issue may be finding a space near the fire doors.


Facilities

End of the room against a wall, ample room for a reasonable sized rig.


Staff

Absolutely excellent.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park, but only one space any good for loading.

Whole back wall to choose from from, no problem.


Staff

Absolutely lovely.



Full venue details

Parking

Fair sized car park, reverse up to the area marked deliveries at the bottom of the car park. From there, its a short trip to the room.


Access

Very good. Although its a basement in the building, its ground floor from the car park. Through a fire door, and across the room.


Facilities

Tiny. Really tiny. The smallest room Ive ever played in. very little space. - width available: 2m or less - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Very very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Grim. Park on the pavement/yellow lines outside venue. The road is the main promenade, so can be very busy. There is a pay and display park round the corner which is free after 6pm.


Access

Long stairs with a turn in it. Fairly shallow though, fortunately. Set up area is likely to be at far side of room, which makes it cramped getting past tables.


Facilities

Corner of room. Space is limited by doorways to toilets, small rig essential.


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Pretty good. Nice little car park , with a no parking bay which is good for unloading. If you can park in the bay next to this, that's very good.


Access

Very good. One small step into venue porch ( there is a portable ramp in the venue, so may be available for use with trolleys ) and one pair of doors. These are self closing, and don't have and hold open facility. They're a little narrow, and awkward one way.


Facilities

No specific area for disco, but there's a small space without chairs and tables, next to a big alcove. The alcove has a very low ceiling, and is not good for discos, but excellent for buffets, which seems to be its purpose.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Very reasonable. Venue has a large car park, and access to the room is by a track off this, round the back of the venue. Park by the fire doors. This area is somewhat isolated and hidden, so you may wish to return your vehicle to the main park.


Access

Very fair. A short walk down a corridor with four corners, and three small steps. Trolleys are useless.

Very good.



Full venue details

Poor. Hard to find at rear of building. Narrow and poor condition.


Access

Function room. Reverse into the "Beer Garden", through the kitchen door, and up a flight of stairs. This brings you into the setup area of the room. Not the worst ever access, stairs are vey wide and good to use.


Facilities

Superb. No stage, plenty of power, plenty of room, unl;ess the room was full to capacity, in which case it would diminish considerably. - width available: at least 5m - height clearance: 3-4m

Staff

Very helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Huge car park, which doesn't have the best access to the Sherwood Suite.


Access

If you park at the rear of the venue, the best access is from the goods inward access. That's excellent for the Sherwood Suite. Unload here, and move vehicle to main car park.

Not great. Likely to be corner of room, at rear wall. Space can be at a premium, and ceiling isn't very high.


Staff

Very very helpful and pleasant.

No designated area, but corner of room was used. Very cramped, small booths and rigs recommended.


Staff

Very pleasant and helpful.

Parking

Acceptable. Car park at rear of venue not huge, but very tidy.


Access

Not bad. Option of going in through side doors with ramp and through the full length of the function room, or beer garden at rear which brings you in at the performance area via steps. Dependant on parked vehicles, beer garden may be easier.


Facilities

Six inch high stage, big enough for a standard rig.


Staff

Absolutely excellent, friendly and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Tricky. Venue has its own tiny car park, which can be used by shoppers. You're quite likely to be blocked in, or block someone else. Best bet is to use car park to unload, and park elsewhere.


Access

Good. Shallow ramp up to fire exit. Performance area is close to that.


Facilities

Raised area in a bay window. Low headroom, mainly due to a beam. Set up in front of this, and you'll have lots of space behind.

Full venue details

Parking

Not too bad. Either in front of the main doors, or by a side door in a narrow lane.

Facilities

Very low stage, plenty of room and height.

For this room, right round the back, by the fire escape. Well lit car park. May have to move van after unloading, as this part of the car park seems to be shared with a building firm.

Access

Very very good. Worst case scenario is a concrete path from car park to door, thirty yards away. If dry, you can reverse your vehicle across the grass right next to the door. Through this door, three steps up straight onto stage.


Facilities

Excellent. Nice stage with ample headroom, area adjacent to stage can be used to store cases. Control of venue lights is adjacent to stage.

Parking

Not the biggest car park, at the rear of the site, but it's immaculate. Floodlit at night too.

Very good. Park next to the door ( only a standard house door though ) walk in, three steps up, and you're on the stage.


Facilities

Huge stage, although you may be sharing it with furniture. Plenty of power sockets, huge starcloth backdrop. Access for guests to stage is poor.

Parking

Good sized tarmac car park, can be busy.


Access

Not good. Electronic door with buzzer/intercom access. Can be propped open/fastened back, but it's a hindrance. Not too far from vehicle though. Function room upstairs with quarter turn.


Facilities

Corner of room, fairly low ceiling.

Parking

Big car park, but narrow where you unload, so care needed in parking, and while unloading.


Access

Pretty Good. 19th Hole is the room on the left as you go in. Terrace is the room on the right. Four big steps into building, and after that it's level. You have to walk through the bar to get to the performance area.


Facilities

Anywhere along the back wall. Loads of 13amp sockets there, Very good.


Staff

Very pleasant.

Staff

Excellent, really nice and helpful.



Full venue details

Parking

Quite good, busy car park.


Access

Depends. However you do it, steps are involved. Either half a dozen through the fire exit in side of building, or steel fire escape outside at end of building. Not the worst by any means, but less than ideal.


Facilities

Corner of room, near power sockets.



Full venue details

Parking

Very good. Gravel courtyard for loading/unloading, and dedicated car park made with tarmac chippings nearby.


Access

Excellent. Shallow ramp, through wide doors, straight into setup area.


Facilities

Space near power sockets, fairly limited width, and not the highest headroom, although perfectly workable for most rigs.

Acres of space, especially near the fire escape which is where you get access.


Access

Steel external fire escape, which is superbly lit at night. Quite steep, but once at the top you're straight into the room.

Parking

Often congested, but a fair size. If you can get a space near the entrance, youre fine.


Access

All flat, or easy ramps. No problem. Through double doors which can be fixed back, no problem. Its a decent distance, but not bad at all.


Facilities

Small low stage, with two steps all round. Very good access for DJ and guests. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2m or less


Staff

Absolutely fine, very pleasant.

Parking

Interesting. Access is by a pedestrianised area, so no vehicles before 5.30pm Park on double yellows to unload in Spurriergate., then move your vehicle to a car park. There are plenty nearby, but theyre costly if you go in before 6pm., and stay there. After 6pm, its £2 all night.


Access

Not good. Through a cobbled alleyway to the venue, and a choice of routes. I used the stairs from the fire exit, not too bad, but dimly lit when you leave.


Facilities

Take as little kit as possible. Theres an in-house system which is awesome, just plug two XLRs into it, and youre ready to go. Very small, low stage, and a few lighting effects installed. All you really need is your playout, your stand, and perhaps a couple of lights. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: 2-3m


Staff

Absolutely brilliant. Very very helpful.

Parking

The venue has ample parking, with multiple parks. However, parking your vehicle to unload is " interesting ". You have to bounce up onto the pavement ( no drop kerbs ) and park on it at the side of a very busy road.


Access

Reasonable. Through an archway, and over a paved walkway, into the room. Tables and chairs make access to the stage tricky.


Facilities

Centrally positioned alcove facing across the room. Foot high stage, with ample power points. - width available: 2-3m - height clearance: over 4m


Staff

No issues



Full venue details

Parking

Not great. Narrow entrance, with poor visibility. Car Park is cramped, and not good for large vans. If you can park near the electric vehicle charging point, thats handy for unloading.


Access

Poor. Long distance from car park over uneven paving and gravel. Good trolleys essential, preferably with pneumatic tyres.


Facilities

Very reasonable. Large rigs not needed, One wall of the room available. - width available: 3-4m - height clearance: 3-4m


Staff

Very helpful indeed.



Full venue details

Parking

Large car park for the rest of the business, plenty of space.


Access

Very, very good. Park next to the door to unload, and move vehicle when finished. You can leave it nearby, rather than use the guest car park, which is handy. You're straight into the barn, and it's easy. Only issue is the door has a sill which prevents trolleys, should you wish to use one.


Facilities

Back wall of barn, space depends on what additional things are booked. Plenty of room for a band and disco.


Staff

Excellent, very helpful and pleasant.
