Review of Boiler Shop

Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Boiler Shop emerged from the dust of a major refurbishment at the end of 2016. The building has been described by Melvyn Bragg as "the very crucible of the Industrial revolution", so it was fitting that the first band to be promoted in house were those titans of German industrial music, Einstürzende Neubauten. Live music sits alongside Club nights like Concept 10 and foodie fans are literally catered for at the monthly Great Northern Soul Food events.

Went to see showhawkl duo , sound system amazing and pop up bars. Even though we were right at the front there was no probs going to the bar at the back and return to the front even though it was packed. Really cool venue and loads of taxis for way home

Me and two friends came to see The Showhawk Duo at this venue last night and it is now one of my favourite venues! We got right to the front, and despite the venue being sold out it wasn't overly hot or cold like some venues with bands playing. It is a huge venue, and we didnt wait to long at the bar either. We are actually coming back this Thursday for Bongos Bingo.

St. Patrick’s night at bongos bingo was amazing!
Bingo like you’ve never known it, I found drinks reasonably priced for the centre of town, £16 for 4 cans, 2 cocktails for £10 or £4 house spirit and mixer.
Amazing night, suitable for all ages as long as your happy to dance on the tables!!

This was our first visit and it's excellent.

The place is a lot larger than I thought it was going to be, and very easy to park near at a vaguely reasonably priced multi storey. It looks great inside and the sound was superb. I also appreciated the subtle lights - it meant you could still see the band!!!

One gripe, we went to the very obvious entry (where there is a massive sign saying the venue name) to be told to go back to the sign less lane we just walked past. A sign or a person there would have been appreciated.

Every single event I have been to in Boiler Shop as been absolutely 10 out of 10! As it's so big you don't get sweaty and there is so much room for dancing you can choose to have your own spot or be right up at the front with the artist playing! Great night out every single time would highly recommend!
