I was really disappointed by the night. For the price of the tickets we were expecting a great venue, great music and some good entertainment- unfortunately we only ended up with the first. The music downstairs was especially poor. The DJ up to around 2/3am was basically playing YouTube videos of live versions of songs, and the songs themselves weren't good. I know these things are subjective but this view was shared with a load of other people on the dancefloor- it just wasn't fun. The 'entertainment' was also a bit odd- the compere lost his mic at some point and could barely be heard. It's a shame because as I said the venue itself was quite cool, and I could have lived with the expensive drinks if the overall event itself was worth it, but unfortunately it wasn't, and what was set up as a Halloween party was actually just more of a gathering at a pub- we ended up leaving pretty early because we were just bored.

I'm so sorry you had a bad experience with the staff at the venue. We unfortunately don't have any power over pricing or venue staff but I'm sure the venue would like to know if there are problems to be dealt with. Feel free to drop me an email and I will happily pass on any complaints.

I thought that the venue was interesting, but I'm not sure that the best was made of it. I think the top floor could have had a better usage and more Halloween themed music could have been played. Not sure I would go to any trouble to visit the venue again. Visited The Kings Head on 2017-10-28

Thank you so much for coming along. it's a great space isn't it! Unfortunately for us, the bulk of the top floor was booked out by a private party via the venue so we weren't able to maximise on it. However, I hope you enjoyed all the other things we had going on. Did you conjure a spirt? or visit our spooky cinema? Or hear a chilling tale in the story telling room? With regards to music, we're struggling to think of many halloween songs! Let us know though and we'll stick them in for next year!

Good costumes, excellent location! The mood was not quite there for dancing & it would have been nice to have more choice for the drinks. But nice party overall Visited The Kings Head on 2017-10-28

Thanks so much for coming along! Glad you had fun!! Hopefully you managed to find lots of things to do if you weren't in the mood for dancing! And I will pass your comments about the drinks selection onto the venue.. unfortunately we just hire the space so don't have much sway but I know they would love to know people's thoughts.
