The place is a small hall with a balcony and a reasonably large stage. That would be a good venue for concerts but for the absolutely thuggish security who jump on anyone who dares produce a camera- even a pocket one - for a snap. They are clearly operating in the 1980s and think they can bully and intimidate paying punters, they cannot. Worse still, they are inconsistent in their operation, and while pouncing on some instantly, they seem to just 'give up' and leave others to it. This venue would be good, but while they employ complete and utter gorillas with the minds of amoebas and muscles of The Rock, from now on I will swerve this place regardless of how good the acts are. Wolverhampton Civic is a haven for thugs.

I booked the ballet dance classes, which promised to be fun, challenging but overall fulfilling. The classes worked out at £8 per class, which in itself is very expensive, but they promised so much I thought I'd give it ago. You have to block book the entire term, this set me back £104!!!
I attended the first "ballet" class and was disheartened that the "warm up" consisted of 10 pliés, but generally just light bouncing on the spot to allegedly warm up the knees. The class had a performing arts feel to the class, not artristic challenging ballet that it promised. The class instructor Caroline Zdrakovic left a lot to be desired, and I'm not sure from her appauling effort that she actually has much experience at ballet, and in my opinion should definitely not be being paid to teach others!
I hastily wanted a refund on these expensive lessons, but was refused by both the management Andy Wood, and the dance teacher Caroline Zdrakovic. It took them 4 weeks to decide not to give me a refund, with Caroline being extremely rude about the whole thing.
All in all my visit to the Artrix was dreadful and I will never be attending again. I am nearly £100 out of pocket that has been given to an incompetent woman who cannot dance.

Lionel Richie concert planned for 22/9/12 was cancelled at the last minute. Ticket buyers have only been offered a percentage of their ticket money back as 'compensation'. This gig would have attracted many Lionel Richie fans given that it was his first UK appearance for 3 years and would attract fans who are not interested in racing. Very poor customer service to offer 'compensation' to Lionel Richie fans who are out of pocket.
Suggest you go to a proper music venue for future events and give Newbury Racecource a miss if this is indicative of their policy.
