  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.
