We visit often to see favorite acts and cannot fault the venue or the staff. My only wish is that there could be more places to eat either in or around this venue so we could make more of a night of it but that's just my personal preference.

Easy to find, right in the centre of Nottingham. Easy access to the front, plenty of stairs to the rear. Plenty of helpful event staff. Not that big so pretty much a good view anywhere. Will travel for this venue again.

Went there for the Slipknot/Korn gig, first the staff had us queing in the wrong area and we had to move and queue somewhere else (Thus taking even more time for us to get in). We were then allowed in and shown to the wrong area for seating, thus taking us another 15 minutes to get someone who knew what... More

The Arena was excellent as the view for concerts was excellent. The way the seating was placed so that you could see over the tops of the heads of others when seated, unless someone stood of course. However when we saw a couple of people being compromised by two who continued to stand everytime a vocalist sand, they were quite... More

A good value for money experience, and fills a few hours with friends or your partner. you can hire boots as well, and it suitable for experienced and inexperienced skaters. Good fun!

I saw all the above in early December. I prefer the Royal Concert Hall, but obviously certain shows want a lot of bums on seats so you go where the show is. Food and drink is on the expensive side, always is at such events, however, the lack of a decent draught bitter is a bit of a joke, as... More

We went expecting a support group but then read the tickets to see there was no support. John came on and captured the everyones attention from the beginning. Great show and brilliant entertainment.Because it was a live show there was some strong language so this might not appeal to some people.
