Loved the Arena, its so intimate. Wonderful view. Accessible. Drinks weren't priced over the top. Would definitely choose over other City Arenas.

I took my mum for an early Christmas treat to the Nottingham Arena to see Andre Reiu' An amazing venue and a wonderful evening. The arena is an excellent all round concert building also incorporating the Nottingham Ice Rink. Very central very easy to access. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Watched Jon bishop. We were right at the back but could still see him clearly. Great sound. Comfy seats. Food inside the arena was ok priced. Hot dog and drink expensive though at 7 quid. Toilets are bloody miles away from where we sat as well and difficult to leave ur seat if you need the loo as everyone has... More

This venue is a good stadium venue. We had good centre seats to see john bishop. We had a great night. Easy to get to and from. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

We saw WWE here and even getting the tickets only the day before we still got great seats. It's small enough to have a good view from anywhere but big enough to get some big names. Can't wait for our next event here!

Capital FM Arena is large enough to hold large scale concerts but still small enough to have an air if intimacy as no matter where you sit the view is excellent.

This was our first visit to the Capital Arena, Nottingham. We were located in the tiered seating and had a good view of the stage for the Kasabian Gig. The arena is a reasonable size and staff were helpful, friendly and very well organised Found the facilities good although found the food and drink rather on the expensive side. Will... More

We went to see The Who last night and the concert sounded wonderful - but actually seeing the stage was VERY hard. Everyone stood up - (this often happens at pop concerts) but because there is NO rake on the stalls whatsoever and because people in front of us were very tall we could see little of the stage. I...

As this was a treat for my wife (and myself), I thought I would splash-out a bit and buy good seats; only a few rows back from the stage. We had not been to the venue before. On arrival there were plenty of helpful staff and we quickly found our seats. As the place is basically an ice rink, the... More
