"Venue 73 is the 'Jewel in the crown' of venues. Stunning interior (think northern soul dance hall) great sound, great welcome. Run by passionate people who are most definitely 'restoring its former glory' this place should be on every bands 'tour schedule' "
-Garry Christian, Lead singer The Christians

What our customer say...
"Venue 73 is under new management, and has the potential to be one of the best live music venues in the region, if it can garner the support. I went last night to see Fleetwood Bac - a very talented tribute band - the place came alive. Heaven 17 play on 23 October - ticket sales are good, and it promises to be an excellent, atmospheric gig, especially as the band's performances still excel. The staff and management are gracious, efficient and friendly. Please support this venue if you can - too many like this are going down the tubes."
-Marie P, Trip Adviser
"We enjoyed a fabulous New Years Eve with good old Motown and Northern Soul music. Excellent venue with a great atmosphere and somewhere where the more mature members of society can let their hair down and have a good boogy!! Great venue too all year round with superb acts and regular Motown and Soul nights. Try it if you haven't been."

"Went to eat and then went on to Venue 73, she's a shabby old dame but a fantastic dance floor and the music is first class. The bar had good service and not over priced. The place opened at 7.45 but get in the queue a little earlier if you want a choice of seats"

"Went to Venue 73 last week (came up from Brighton for the weekend) for both the northern soul night on the Friday and the modern jive night on Saturday. What a beautiful dance hall with a great floor and a friendly crowd. Keep up the good work, hope this place keeps being supported as a place like Venue 73 needs to stay. Will be back soon, just wish I lived closer!"
