but the place is overpriced for the rather naff decor, and like NIA is basically a shed with seats. Do not see comedy here! OK for bands though and it has the distinct advantage of being in the centre of Nottingham

It's a functional place, which relies on the events rather than the friendliness of the staff. They claim that the reason they don't allow you to take your own food in , is due to health and safety, even though other large venues such as the City Ground, do. The food is fast food. Generally. The best thing I have... More

We're unable to allow people to take their own food in due to the fact that the food they may purchase, bring into the venue and consume in the Arena bowl could make the person ill or give them food...
