We have been here twice. It's easy to find and there is adequate parking nearby even in August. The skating is great here - you get a good long session and there is a skating... read more

I sat in block 6 for the Panthers game, eysterday. There was nowhere near enough staff for the game on the bar, and I missed a lot of it due to this. By the time I'd missed almost all of the 2nd sector of the match, I decided to just leave (I mean, the Panthers were playing horrednously anyway). I... More

We have been here twice. It's easy to find and there is adequate parking nearby even in August. The skating is great here - you get a good long session and there is a skating equipment shop and nice little cafe where I had an excellent carrot and orange soup with panini. We all skated - our children are teenagers... More

A great venue to see the shows - get there early to avoid the queues though. Drinks and food available once you have gone through but can be pricey.

I was lucky enough to win VIP tickets to see McBUSTED in May 2014 and was second row from the stage and as you could imagine the view was fantastic and the venue has a great atmosphere. Later in the year (October) I managed to get free VIP tickets and meet and greet passes to see Ed Sheeran which was... More

We go regularly to the National Ice Centre. I organise a monthly Home Education ice skating session. The numbers grow month to month. Easy to organise and buy the group tickets. Love the T&D bar where we meet before the session. The refurbed cafe downstairs has been a breath of fresh air. Parents can actually stay warm whilst watching the... More

Visited here on many different occasions. Carl Froch's early fights, WWE events, Nottingham Panthers matches and the East Midlands Masters 5 a side tournament. Be aware the food and drinks are extortionate prices. After the first time I always bring my own.

Went to see Mrs Browns Boys... Was disappointed with the sound quality, cost of tickets and the response from the Arena when my friend complained about the matter... Left at the first interval... Should have bought the DVD

I have visited this venue on several occasions for live events and concerts. After being very impressed on my first visit I haven't hesitated when arranging many other visits here. I have been seated in blocks 5, 7 and 15 all of which give great views on the stage. Like many arenas the stairs get a little steep towards the... More
