DJ Reviews of Royal British Legion Jesmond
The following information will be useful to DJs, entertainers and other service providers who have been hired to work at Royal British Legion Jesmond.
This review provided by Disco Couture on 23/09/2016
Function Room is located on the First Floor via stairs floor.
Parking: Access: Facilities: Staff: Permanent wooden dancefloor
No sound limiter
Raised floor area
No useable in-house effects
No air conditioning
PARKING: Parking on the road is permit only but your ok on an evening or weekend, the place does have its own carpark with plenty spaces
ACCESS: Its a bad one I'm afraid. 2 flights of stairs with a stair lift which adds to the pain. There pretty narrow at best but the doors are ok and don't add to the woe. Its deffo one for your lighter upstairs rig. So now your upstairs its all the way to the back of the room to set up.
STAFF: No issues. all very pleasant.
COMMENTS: There are good and bad parts here, the bad is in the entry and setup, the room could be so much better and has poor capacity. The committee room looks bigger. The room does sound good however and I enjoyed the acoustics of the long room.

Function Room is located on the Ground floor.
Parking: Access: Staff: Permanent wooden dancefloor
Low permanent stage
No sound limiter
Some useable in-house effects
No air conditioning
PARKING: There is a very large car park to the left side of the venue and several parking bays to the front. Its best to stop in a front bay for unloading then move to the side car park for the rest of the event.
ACCESS: From the bay at the front of the club, through two sets of double doors, up a split level / two direction internal staircase and turn right through another door into the function room.
STAFF: Two staff working the upstairs bar. Friendly, helpful and did a fab job of keeping the room clean and tidy throughout the event. Last orders 23:15, time / music off 23:30, cleared by midnight.
COMMENTS: Great club with good staff and punters. The load in is a bit intense but the clear isnt too bad :) Stage is inaccessible due to instruments and equipment being permanently set up so take some extensions. Otherwise everything here is spot on.
The DJ Says...
Who better to comment on the suitability of venues for parties and events than those who work in them on a regular basis? Folks who also get to see how things work behind the scenes?

"Situated in a busy area of Jesmond the club is set back and has its own parking off street which is great as all around is permit zones. The room is up 2 flights of stairs and there is a chair lift, but no actual lift. The room is long and narrow with seating for under 100. Bar and toilets are in the room and there is a little raised area that can be used for entertainers. Staff are pleasant and easy to work with. Over all its a decent room but with limited applications. You might find that some entertainers will charge a surplus for the difficult load in."
