An oasis in a cultural wilderness.

Advantages: friendly and compact pub/venue
Disadvantages: a bit too small

Tucked away in the winding back streets of Swindons Old Town, the Beehive is an oasis in a town of trendy theme pubs and cattle market watering holes. The pub has a quirky flavour and appearance that is reflected by its regular crowd. A painted body outli ...

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

Advantages: Attracts relatively big-name bands, convenient location
Disadvantages: Terrible venue, no air-con, poor facilities, ill equipped.

...INTRODUCTION - I've been a fan of live rock music for some years now but living in Leeds have nearly always been forced to travel to Manchester to see bigger name bands simply because of the lack of a venue big enough to attract them. Now Leeds has som ...
