Town Hall as a venue

I see that the Operatic Society have another performance coming up. These are always great and I look forward to them. My complaint is about the Town Hall. The seats are impossibly uncomfortable. They are also much too close together meaning that I have to sit with my buttocks up against a complete stranger's buttocks and no room to stretch out legs. These might have been acceptable in the olden days but these days I expect more comfort. Can they not find a better venue or can the Town Hall invest in better seats. Surely Lewes should have a decent venue where you are not having to look up to the stage through a sea of heads. The venue just does not match the quality of the performance.

Although not involved in the current production (Sandy Wilson's, The Boyfriend) I remember the Director saying in the initial read through that the seat layout will be a banked arena this time. Possibly a first for LOS. So you would be looking down onto a central acting space and not a traditional theatre layout. The only other large venue I can think of is the Leisure Centre, but I'm sure the Badminton Hall would have shocking acoustics.
