We contacted the venue seeking assistance with seating for health reasons and this was assured by email from the tour organiser. sadly upon arrival this message had not been relayed to front of house and we were 'shrugged' in and left to our own devices, it was only by badgering one of the security team that we were able to...

Huge venue in a nice area. Alcohol reasonably priced. Music they played was decent. That's about all I remember from the night out, so all in all I would say it's good.

Excellent place to go with friends for some proper music to drink to! Shame it's so hard to leave though (sticky floor).

Presuming you are even smart enough to read this &you are a bouncer at Rock City, then I think its safe to say your working a terrible job. You are emotionless like a bunch of drones. You have to work in horrible conditions, and most of the time you target vulnerable people who haven't even done anything wrong. I bet... More

Excellent venue, VIP upgrade available, seating area there but you can't sit and watch the bands, but the view from the balcony is excellent. Stalls to hire would be an excellent idea. We attended for Rockingham for three days, all ran really well. Plenty of bars, security and great music. Well worth a visit, our second time here.

The main stage is strategically located so you can have a good view anywhere. There is always good rock bands playing on it so don't miss a chance to attend when you are in Nottinghan!

The venue is laid out very well, however the flooring can get very slippery once a few drinks have been spilt everywhere. Toilet staff are annoying as hell, defo worth trying to dodge them. Good sound and lighting quality. Best for youngs uns on a Friday night, cheesy music all night long!! Good drink offers!!

Just got back from this venue. This was the first time I have been to a concert at this venue. Wow what a superb venue for a rock concert. The place has a great atmosphere and the sound is superb. There are two car parks within walking distance of the venue. One is opposite and the other one which I... More
