We first went to the Arena with our Granddaughters in October 2012 to see Ice Age Live!, which was brilliant, our granddaughters had never been to an arena before, and because they were young they were taken aback by the size of the place. Also the seating is very steep so beware with the young and elderly too. But once... More

Although our seats were fairly high up, we still had excellent full views of everything that was going on down below (and indeed, in the air!). Seats were comfortable enough and the temperature was good. Not too stuffy nor too cold. Interval service was offered in the way of tubs of ice-cream which weren't too bad actually - £1.50 for...

Last night was very disappointing. We were in seats M on the balcony and could not clearly hear any of her songs. The sound was distorted. Even songs we knew were hard to follow. This is the last time we will use this venue.

Couldn't fault the staff all very friendly polite and efficient. Wish we had a venue like this in Leicester. The show was fantastic and although we were on the floor seats the view was pretty good and the big screens obviously helped. Looking forward to going again

Went to watch an Elton John concert at the Arena. Fantastic show. However the food and drinks concessions were the worst managed I have ever seen at an event. Hugely overpriced, untrained staff and constant panic and disorganisation as the stalls continually ran out of product even with low demand and before the event started. Dreadful quality and pricing that... More
