Warning - Pleasance Cavern Performances Can Hurt!
Rhod Gilbert made the observation within moments of starting his performance and he is not wrong! In the Pleasance Cavern there are three rows of seats right in front of the stage. This first is chairs, the remaining two are joined padded seats. The back or third row has a tiny 6 inch vertical support and that's it. Sitting there for an hour is extremely sore on your back! The middle row is fine as there is a metal pole running above the tiny vertical support which can be used as an upper back. Avoid the third row at all costs (unless you can sit at the very edge where you could lean far back and use the stairs as support).
