The first few rocknights were pretty poop but the Maiden tribute band were awesome so was Lightyear but the biggest one is Rollins band comin soon it'll be excellent coz hes a legend. Too many little kids go there though so a lot of nu-metal is played from the dj's but u can get some good stuff played especially if Phil and that are the DJs

The Maiden tribute band may have been awesome but Therapy? f***ing rocked, and that was back in Nov2k. The civic needs our support at the moment cos there are rumours floating about that it may lose its licence due to "noise" levels and certain members of the community complaining. on the plus side, prices are reassssonable, as is the beer :D

Yeah, it's reasonable to get in and the beer's cheap but can we please have a bit more varied music! Admittedly they do play the odd 'proper' metal song but it's mainly just punk & nu-metal!

the best way to get something played is to either ask phil before the rocknite (obv only if he's djing). even if he doesnt have the cd he'll download it in time for it. Otherwise, just bring along a cd and go up to the dj straight away and ask for it to be played. even if it's not *popular*, so long as a few peeps get up it should be ok.

prices are way too high for this place, you end up paying between 5 and 8 to see bands you never heard of, so when you get in no-ones there because its too expensive. The place has potential, i used to have a great time in here before the prices went up. If the price goes down i would go there a lot more

it can be quite expensive for entry, but the crack is generally good. i used to go quite regularly but more recently prices have put me off going also the bar is pretty strict on id so make sure u have yours with u if u want to get served. if you go to the copeland website and fill in their survey, u are entered in a prizedraw to win a pass for a year to get into any gig in there for free.

not only are the prices ridiculous, the bouncers appear to think theyre guarding buckingham feckin palace! I had to stand there for like 15 minutes while they searched the entire contents of my bag and me and even inside my shoes! its mental!

I really love this place, but lately there has not been so many good bands on. There is also a lot of people i know who really want to see more metal bands. Apart from that very good.

The best gigs at the civic are usually the live bands (not the regular club nights) when they have decent bands playing like Whitmore and the Wildhearts. There are roumors going around that Lostprophets might be playing there sometime soon as well. Anyway, if maxwell's on the bar he isn't as strict with ID providing you don't look like you're about 12. The DJs are pretty cool, usually play stuff if you ask them

has a lot of metal, indie and punk gigs. ticket prices are reasonable though they have a habit of charging more than the advertised price! it is also annoying that the bar is seperate and that you cant enjoy a beer and the bands at the same time!
