  Stage of the City Hall
by LouiseTopp

The City hall is a great venue, it hasn’t been there for many years. You can watch many tribute bands & entertainers performing here, & some of the shows are really good. There’s a large entrance hall just inside the entry which has the reception desk & restroom, round the corner is a bar while upstairs is the local radio station studios “Spire FM”. The actual stage is through a set of swing doors, there’s thought to be a ghost of a woman seen walking across the stage. There’s large speakers at the front & the projector room is up right at the back. Some of the people who have played here are:

• Paul Denials
• Tony Hadly
• En-Masse (Salisbury’s pop/soul vocal group)
• Maddy Prior (who plays Medieval music)
• The Band of H.M. Royal Marines
• Voulez Vous (Abba Tribute band)
• Australian Pink Floyd Show
• ELO (electric Light Orchestra)
• Blues Bands
• Serum Chamber Orchestra
• Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
• Barry Cryer
• Spirit of the Dance (from Michael Flatleys River Dance)
• Rockin' on Heavens Door
• Nashville Nights & Dixie Days
• The Levellers
• Solid Silver 60's
• Ken Dodd
• Davy Jones (Monkees)
• The Bohemians
• The Sooty Show
• Derren Brown (did Mind control on Channel 4 in the UK)
• Joe Brown & Marty Wilde
• Joe Longthorne
• The Fureys & Davey Arthur
• That'll Be the Day!
Buddy Holly actually played here in 1958. There are facilities for the disabled, its a lovely place to go for an evening, & would recommend it to anyone.
