My Wife and I made our first ever visit to The Thwaites Empire Theatre after being invited by friends to watch a performance of the Stargaze Dance Academy. We have driven past this location on numerous occasions in recent years, and often thought of calling in. Well, I am so glad we finally did! There is plenty of free parking nearby which can accommodate the size of the theatre's audience capacity. I can not comment on how well lit it is at night as we attended during daylight hours.

This venue has everything! Bars, main concert hall that has balconies and either standing or seating set up in front of large stage. There is also a further hall downstairs. Centrally located, it is also an impressive building and the main hall is quite grand! I have attended concerts there (Stereophonics, Placebo, Paul Weller, Manic Street Preachers, Runrig, Lightening Seeds, Deacon Blue and The Dubliners to name but a few!) and the sound has been excellent. Recommended!
