Excellent arena

Went to see Stictly Come Dancing. Had a great evening .Fortunately we had seats with easy access to the facilities at half time. The queues for the toilets and bars was horrendous.

Went to see Strictly live tour on Tuesday evening The arena was excellent - Parking - use the Broadmarsh and walk for 10 mins it saves the queue coming out of the nearby carparks. SEat even though 3 roes from the top gave excellent view Simply the show was good but overpriced!

The event was just superb but the venue needs some improving: - the stairs to seats are steep and need more railings - often there is insufficient time to get refreshments during the breaks (OK before when there is almost no queuing). . However the seat views are good, so are the back-up screens and the sound.

The Motorpoint Arena is regularly visited venue for big shows and concerts. This trip was to see the Strictly Live Tour. We opted for the Hospitality package which gave us a preshow meal with a free bar and very good seats for the show. Not cheap at £120 each, as opposed to normal seating at £50 to £70 but well...

Easy to find with lots of car parks nearby as well as only a short walk from the city centre and trams from Park and Ride places. Nice cafe with decent snacks and good view of ice skating rink. Good fun watching the kids learning!! - and some adults too!! Staff very helpful and guides around the place for everything.... More

Some large venues give restricted viewing from some seats, but, even though we were only one row from the back, visibility was excellent. Staff very helpful, with a sense of humour - or at least the two we talked to were! I just suggest that you use the tram park and ride rather than try and use a nearby car-park... More

A very good Arena, visited several times for concerts. Never any bother, queues go down quickly, and staff are friendly and helpful. Food and drink pricey, but I suppose it's to be expected in this type of venue.

Second time, in a matter of months, that I have been to a concert here. Access is good, as is the merchandising. Doesn't take long to get a drink/food as long as you are prepared to pay overly inflated stadium prices. I'm not sure if it is the poor sound or lack of atmosphere but I really just don't get...
