Selected reviews for this venue:

Aaron Rosenthal, 14/07/14
Hall & Oates (14/07/14) - Best gig ever.
I sweated a lot. Surely thats a good sign. They played all the hits, everyone was very happy, they had a saxophonist in a linen suit and a Gandalf beard called Mr Casual. I think if you asked for more, youre an idiot.
Allan Smith, 14/07/14
One of the best places to see a concert. I have been goint there since the 70s when it was the Hammersmith Odeon
Hall & Oates (14/07/14) - Fantastic!!
They were incredible! Played all the hits and the audience were also unbelievable! What a show! One of the best concerts of my life!
Keith Liberty, 09/07/14
Jack White (09/07/14) - Flippin brilliant gig
So full of excited anticipation as the days led up. First pub out of tube was perfect, drinking outside with a three piece plugged in band entertaining all. Actually met Jacks violinist Lillie Mae there! A fine handshake. Earlier Id been thinking that because of the curtains at the Apollo wouldnt it be great if Jack used the opportunity of not just a walk on entrance. Well he sure did, the sight and sound of him bursting through as they parted will I hope stay with me forever. What followed was bliss to the senses. What a man! What a band! Great stage-set, lighting, sound, view. Been recalling it ever since. Thanks Jack. Thanks Eventim.

PARKING IN THE BOROUGH OF HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM
Hammersmith & Fulham Council is a dedicated participant in the European Blue Badge Scheme. As long as you display your badge and clock correctly, you can park in any shared use bay in the borough free of charge. This applies to all badge holders, not just borough residents. There are also a number of Disabled Use bays in the borough, which any Blue Badge holder can park in. Blue Badge holders can also park on a single yellow line for up to 3 hours. Please remember, you must display both your badge and clock to park in Disabled Use bays or on single yellow lines.
A Blue Badge does not entitle the holder to:
Park where there are loading restrictions. These are shown by yellow markings on the kerbstones. Signs nearby will tell you when a restriction applies.
Park across a dropped kerb. These are used by prams, wheelchairs and other pedestrians. Blocking them can cause serious difficulties to these people when they try to cross the road.
Park in front of a crossover. This is an access crossing for vehicles to drive off the road onto private land.
Park in a bay marked for other special users, for example Doctor’s bay, Market Traders bay, Motorcycle bay or Goods Vehicles only. As part of Hammersmith & Fulham council’s commitment to the Blue Badge Scheme, Penalty Charge Notices may be issued to vehicles which are parked incorrectly or appear to be misusing Blue Badges. In some circumstances, vehicles may be relocated. If you receive a penalty charge notice while displaying a Blue Badge, you have the same rights to challenge the ticket as any other motorist.
