    Cold if you're sat round watching roller derby in winter!

    Solid gig venue. Great place to watch up and coming bands just before they go "stadium". Consistently average to good acoustics in unremarkable settings

    Awful venue for a gig, went to see a very visual band and the stage was obscured by the pillars from multiple angles. Probably great for a DJ but not this time

    Fantastic variety of music on offer - cheap parking next door, and Kro bar cross the road for pub food!

    Awful sound. Bring earplugs.

    Retarded policy of not giving you the cap for a bottle of water. It's not like you can stab a man with one, is it?!

    No bottles, no glow sticks, curfew normally 11pm! Outdoor smoking area. Lots of loos bar in academy 1 and outside in main area.

    Park in car park at left of the building as you look at it from Oxford Road, buzz to enter and mind the high curbs, you need £2 (2 1£) to park no change given, no reverse so you best have it exact!

    I was ment to see a live band but must of took a wrong turn, as it seems I ended up at a Lumberjack convention, sale on checkered shirts at Topshop you say?

    Best tip, see the bands before they get big enough to play here. If you must, bring earplugs.

    Balcony is reserved for disabled people who have requested space or a seat in advance, saves getting damaged by the crowd downstairs. You need to put in an accommodation request when booking tickets.
