Does anyone on here ever get along there? It's Newbury's treasure for live music and comedy.

Last night we saw Marriage of Figaro by Kennet Opera, but really it's more of a blues venue. Next week I'm seeing Bernie Marsden, but over recent months I've seen Elles Bailey (up and coming blues singer) supported by my cousin, Hugh Cornwell, Joanne Shaw Taylor and lots more besides.

In the past we saw a fantastic and poignant show by Sean Hughes.

It is a great venue and deserves support.
Seen some brilliant acts there over the last few years.

It is OK for a sit and watch event, but the bar is sparse and the venue is a little out of the way compared to, say, The Corn Exchange.

Last time we patronised the Corn Exchange I miscalculated the finishing time of the performance and had to rush out at the interval to feed the Wharf ticket machine . Not exactly helped by the fact the wretched things don't give change .
Little wonder everyone parks in Sainsbury's , but they are tightening up on the 2 allotted hours .

In the evening on street parking is free at least.

They already have.
Woe betide anyone who exceeds the 2 hours determined by the ANPR system now installed.

I've been a few times and seen some great acts: PP Arnold, The Blues Band, Cerys Matthews, Muddy Water's son, Wilko Johnson and many more.

I went on a speed awareness course there once... was disappointed to find we had to pay for our coffee! Otherwise I have always been tempted but never gone along.

It's interesting to note that an element of society consider it perfectly acceptable to break the law , vis a vis speeding , making light of their punishment , yet become apoplectic over a "non pc" remark . The law is the law , contravening it is , in my book , unacceptable .

In my case my indiscretion was accidental, often what people say is deliberate. I also disgree that breaking the law is always unacceptable, especially if the law is ‘unacceptable’.

Which laws are 'unacceptable' in your book?
