Amazing music and line up
Bar was really rubbish with a small selection of drinks at extortionate prices
Toilet ques were horrendous
Needed some more lighting around the venue as it felt a bit like a school disco
The que for the bar was also tediously long 50/60 deep most times

We arrived at 9.00pm and had to queue for 45 minutes to get in. The toilet queue was so long it went half way across the dance floor. There was not enough bar services and we had to stand in cattle grid railings for 30 minutes to get a drink which led to panic buying. The floor was so slippy and wet and there were bottles and cans everywhere. Understaffed and over sold. I had a good time because I made sure I had a good time as I was with my friends and we made the best of a rubbish situation. £27... I was definitely robbed!! Try focusing on quality and not quantity. Double the amount of bars, get some ports loos and it might just have been okay. Did greed prevail? You just could not cater for the demand.

Music was good but it was absolute chaos and ridiculous massive queues for the toilet and bar. No where to sit down or any table etc. Just a big bare empty hall.

Review of Show Me Love

The event was over priced for what it was. The queues for toilets and the bar were ridiculous. It was just like a school disco, there was no decorations or adequate seating area. The music and the live acts were good, but it was just a very poor venue choice.

Arrived 8:15 pm and didn't get in until nearly 9, then we had to squeeze through everyone huddled in the hallway. Waiting for the toilet was rediculous, my friend waited 35 minutes for the loos and the que went round the hall into the the actual music hall.

I get they have limited toilets but they could've got portaloos for this occasion.

The bar wasn't too bad of a que until later into the night and the selection was tinned vodka and diet c**e, prosecco, rose and a few different beers. Not a good selection and very over priced considering you can get three tins for a fiver normally.


Awesome music very polished but I would highly recommend using a different venue for the show me love or any type of music event like this, the hall wasn't prepared for it. It felt like a shambles to be honest no offence. Would not go back here for this type of event.

Had to queue for an hour to get in even though tickets had been purchased before. Had to queue for over half hour for toilets and the bar. Drinks were limited choice and expensive. Very disappointing. If the music wasn’t as good as it was I would have left.

Really long queue to get in, especially as it was tickets only - rude staff and toilet queue was ridiculous - must have been about an hour long. Bar was expensive and limited but this was the most organised bit. Music was good but sound quality not the best.
