This is now quite an old arena now and my goodness does it show! Uncomfortable, cramped seating, poor facilities (particularly the wholly inadequate and grim men's toilets) and totally avoidable queuing outside to get in with insufficient staff on ticket checks. Leeds does it so much better, as does Manchester.

First time to this arena was easy to get to using the tram. A large venue bit disppointed by the seating as it was a great distance from the stage, although there are large screens either side of the stage. Binoculars would benefit if you are at the opposite end of the arena to the stage. Food and drink overly... More

Just been to see Lee Evans but it is my third time here overall. A really good arena as it's not too big and has a great atmosphere. Parking is £6 so make sure you have change. There are lots of staff to direct you to your seating area. There are lots of eateries over the road from the arena... More

This arena is easily accessible being on the outskirts of the City. It has a large capacity but if you happen to be seated at the opposite side to the stage take binoculars. Usual concessions on the concourse but prices are extortionate. If your taking children take lots of money Parking is available but exits are busy when the show... More

Went to a day time event as opposed to a gig and saw the Arena in a different light: everything was very well planned and laid out, it was clear where all amenities are and although I thought the parking was charge was disgusting (£6!!), there were plenty of staff directing you to free spaces. Overall, I thought it was... More

Really big arena, easy to walk around inside, plenty of refreshment outlets. also lots of room outside the arena with plenty of parking. It has hotels (Premier Inn, Ibis) right nearby. the TableTable restaurant is just across the road. Its also near the tram station which goes to Meadowhall

I went reluctantly as my son is only 14. I thought it was to be awful but once inside my inner geek came out. I was awe struck with the quality guests, the free QnA with the guests where amazing and the photo opportunities were limitless. My son had his photo taken with a White walker, Captain America, Iron Man... More

Went today to this event. It the first time it's been held here in Sheffield at arena. Was overall quite good really. As the convention started at 9 am, for early bird tickets, I was disappointed that no breakfast type foods were on sale, as far as I could see. The usual hot dogs, chicken, pizza and chips etc was...
