Pretty big, this one. Goes up a long way. We played it sideways on, but It's easier to cover lengthways. Quite strong slap-back on the stage from the boxes and that doesn't change much with punters in. Has just over a second of reverb time but not too offensive. Requires more PA than the average arena.

On the whole, not a bad sounding room.
