What makes Acapela Studio so special? – Customer feedback

We are grateful to all our audience members and artists for their enthusiastic support.

Trying to capture the atmosphere at Acapela and the brilliant performances of artists is almost impossible as the only way to experience the amazing venue is live! However our audience members are always trying to take home with them a little piece of concerts they attend.

We have pulled together many of these video clips in one place – not great quality – but many of these clips hold great memories for many of our audience. You can view these on the Acapela Instagram page  @acapelastudiosofficial

Below we give just some of the many kind comments received explaining why they feel Acapela is such a special and unique music venue.

“This is such a great venue tucked away in the edge of Cardiff. I’ve never actually been welcomed to a venue and shown around when I arrived! Wow! Small and intimate, but equipped to handle big sounds, this building is perfect for special gigs. Every member of staff was really helpful and understood that I had a voice problem. The food is excellent! I’ve never had Pear on a pizza, but it’s really great. It only added to a fabulous night. Thank you to all involved”. Steve Jones (Google Reviews)
