“Very impressed by the venue itself, it was well presented and modern. It has a cafe area outside the auditorium which serves cold and hot drinks with alcohol available too and some snacks which were all reasonably priced. The stage was a good size, when we went it was standing but I think they do seated events too. The acoustics were great which made for a good intimate event. I would definitely recommend this place for a gig. And I look forward to returning in the future.”

“I’ve attended a comedy night and a music gig at this venue and really enjoyed both. The set-up lends itself very well to live events, either seated or standing. Friendly and helpful staff and a well-stocked bar…!”

“What a brilliant venue! Modern, clean, comfortable and welcoming, with amazing sound quality, it was a real pleasure to visit Metronome for a gig. I am a disabled person and contacted the venue in advance to ask if it might be possible to have somewhere to sit for the duration of the show. The staff at Metronome could not have been more helpful or kind or understanding. They anticipated my needs and made me feel so relaxed and safe. I would not have been able to attend the gig had it not been for their help so I am extremely grateful to them, as I was able to enjoy a thoroughly great evening. Thank you very much indeed.”
