We went to see Mrs Browns Boys, the sound was dreadful during the first half, people downstairs were laughing but we had no idea what at as we couldn't make out what they were saying. The seating is fine unless you have a huge person sitting next to you as I did. I couldn't get my seat down as his... More

To our great relief on a very hot day the arena was well air conditioned. This enabled us to enjoy an excellent show without feeling we are going to faint. Alarmed when we arrived at entry queue and queue for toilets but both cleared quickly and got drinks quickly. For safety drinks bottles have no tops which means difficult to... More

We have visited this venue around 12 times in the last 6 months. This has been for ice hockey, shows and concerts. It can get very busy but staff are very helpful. Well signposted in the venue for seating areas. Never enough staff at merchandise stands when shows/concerts are playing.

We were coming from the A1 and half of Nottingham seemed to be being dug up to. The website advises not parking in the car parks close to the arena...and for good reason. There are long queues to pay at the parking machines on exit. We were seated on the main floor and found it rather cramped for space.

Matinee performance of Mrs Brown's Boys. I'm reviewing the Arena not the show. Absolutely awful sound quality which played some part in ruining the show. Everything else exactly what you would expect from a large arena.

The arena is very well set out as soon as you walk though the door you can see where you going .There are food courts and bars to get a drink from you can take drinks into the arena with you but they will take of the tops from the bottles .
