Agree with the Goat.

Also, my first ever time in the Guildhall that I remember.  It's a shithole.

 Hey! A bit of respect for my old work place. It's an architectural gem. The glass zodiac signs in the bar  wood pannelling, art deco lamps, the ceiling and mosaics. Sadly it's been battered by load in and outs of music equipment and they've not sorted the toilets out. The o2 run it now and apart from the bars being changed (the curved bars were a nightmare for speedy service and it's where they make the money) the rest appears to have stayed the same. 

 

 I'm used to better.

 looks like it would be cold and a bit echoey. 

Looks alright to me.  Dunno what it would be like in the crowd.   They do concerts all the time.

I agree the guidhall needs some tlc and could look way better.  Other 02 venues have had some good refurbs. 

Who actually ran the rum festival?

Comparing Liverpool and its much loved, protected and appreciated architecture and buildings to Southampton's effort into making a City look shite is like comparing the Sistine Chapel to the East St shopping centre.
