Night watching a comedian

Went to watch a Comedian, getting in and out of function was easy, seats very uncomfortable and very squashed.

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

The ice skating in the stadium was superb, the facilities are fantastic and it is home to Nottingham Panthers and GB Ice skating teams. Loved it very much

Myself and my husband booked to see Lionel Ritchie at this venue. Easy to find, very accessible and plenty of refreshment facilities. Seating was excellent and security was very well organised

I have been to three concerts here. It is a good, centrally located venue with plenty of secure parking nearby. The venue is large and the acoustics are great. The last visit I made we paid extra for our own box and this was a great way to see the act. Would really recommend. God service and helpful staff.

Arena phoned us to upgrade tickets and no problem once we got to the arena moving to new seats. Food and drink expensive.

Took our daughter for the children's Sunday morning skate. Personally I didn't rate the place. Expensive. I can't really put my finger on it but I will say that the staff are rude and they don't crack a smile.

Been a few times to see bands here and all on all it's a decent venue!! Easy access and lots of faces around to answer any questions. Food/drink a bit on the expensive side but hey, find a venue that isn't!

Went to see Mrs Browns Boys. Good show if we only watched it on a huge TV. Very large arena as one would expect but planners did not take into consideration of elderly people. Watching ladies on their hands and knees trying to climb the steps, some giving up and going down same way. God forbid if there was a... More
