Why, why must Refectory be Leeds' biggest venue?!

AdvantagesAttracts relatively big-name bands, convenient location

DisadvantagesTerrible venue, no air-con, poor facilities, ill equipped.

"...name bands simply because of the lack of a venue big enough to attract them. Now Leeds has some brilliant venues, like the Cockpit, Joseph's Well and the Met but none of these reach a capacity of over 1000 which is essential for larger bands really.

Its in taunton . (*)
Easy to Find. Great transport links. Good atmosphere and environment. Clean & Organised.
Ticket prices vary greatly. Expensive food and drink. Some seats can be awkward to see from. (*)
If you like your rock hard, Slaughter House give you just that
The equipment let them down on the night but the crowd were too busy flinging themselves at each other to notice (*)
Cheap entry . Good food .
Expensive to eat and drink . (*)
Close to band, good sound, some up and coming acts.
Sound desk in the middle of the room!! (*)
Looks nice, the bars are well situated on the ground floor and you'll never get too hot.
Uncomfortable seats on the top floor, always cold, and the sound isn't brilliant. (*)
Supporting local live bands and providing good entertainment
limited parking space, no in house sound system (*)
great drink deals, variety of nights, music gigs
small, toilets (*)
Novelty factor of seeing a gig in a church, aesthetically pleasant main hall, hippy atmosphere in the second hall.
Very cold and the seats aren't comfortable, and you can't just 'pop' to the loo or bar between songs because you'll get lost. (*)
Close to the Underground, easy parking.
Over-zealous security, no disabled access upstairs. (*)
