“Seating on floor level needs sorting out.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Not enough walkways between seating so as well as very small uncomfortable seats leaving you too snug against who you sit next to it is quite a task if heaven forbid you need to pop out in the middle of a concert and you are sat in the middle of this long row of seats.

“Modern but uncomfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We went to our first show at the BIC last night. Pre booked parking worked well. Getting out afterwards was chaotic. The seating is cramped and I found the seats uncomfortable, certainly for a show lasting 2 hrs. The air-conditioning struggled. The show was great but the venue wasn't.

“Mark Knopfler Privateering Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

A very polished performance by the former Dire Straits frontman with his own band. Wonderful entertainment at £45 per ticket with an excellent view of the stage. Staff helpful in directing you to your seat.

“leona lewis concert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Excellent seating and sound. Friendly staff, clean and tidy. I would recommend eating before hand or taking your own sweets etc in (if this is allowed) as the price of food is as usual very expensive.
