    I watched Polaris 17 here. Decent venue inside with a good view of the main area from all seats. Parking is a 5 minute walk.

    Watched Polaris 22 here. It is a great venue and compact so every seat has a great view. Bar was very reasonable and was £4 for a bottle of Peroni, £3.50 for a Carlsberg. Hope the event comes back in the future.

    Great night with Gazza, some really funny stories. Big cues for bar on arrival, but staff friendly and diligent in trying to serve people quickly. Toilets adequate but could do with more for the amount of people. Good seating for this type of event.
