Great JLS show Tuesday night. My friend Claire has been isolating for months. The Supervisor on main entrance escorted us to seats down the lift and even explained were toilets. Bar and t-shirt sales were. So kind. At the end another supervisor. They both were in purple . allowed us to charge my phone as battery had died and we couldn't get home. First class customer service. We will be back for little mix.

Unorganised, rude, spoilt night
Nov 2021 • Couples
Went here tonight fir a gig that had been cancelled previously...was really looking for to support act and my wife the main act...when we arrived we were informed we needed proof of covid jabs which i hadn't bought with me...we were told unless we had a test we wouldn't be allowed in the venue and the results would take 30 minutes...so we had to queue to get tested. And wait 45 minutes for results, hence we missed the opening act....having paid £120 this leaves a foul taste in my mouth, why didnt the venue warn about having proof of jabs in maybe an e mail, there were countless people very annoyed at having to do this...the thing is we pay a fortune to go to gigs, all venues etc need the public through the doors and this venue cannot even organise themselves properly...will definitely think twice about going again, utter shambles, rude staff

Left early because it was so hot (in October!)
Oct 2021 • Couples
Was really looking forward to seeing Ricky Gervais but unfortunately had to walk out early because it was so hot in the arena. I went to the bathroom during the show and felt a bit sick because it was so hot in the arena. When I came back to my seat I realised the difference in temperature and me and my partner couldn’t bare to sit in there any longer. I wouldn’t exactly call it Covid safe, obviously we are all piled in like sardines but you’re not even circulating the air where there’s 1000’s of people in the room! Shocking that the air conditioning isn’t on to keep people cool and keep the air flowing.

To make matters worse, we were sat next to a group of people who thought it was ok to talk through the performance. Not the arenas fault, but really annoying when you pay all that money and can’t hear half of what’s being said.

Not good for wheelchair users, unless you want a view of a bum!
Nov 2020 • Couples
Not great for disabled. I came to watch Kisstory FM tour and was in a wheelchair with a carer. We stood in a queue despite me showing my lanyard and nimbus accessibility card that provides an icon that I cannot queue and I have toileting needs. These are meant to get you inside quicker and through a different due to the disabled persons needs…the steward took a look and shrugged. Then once I got to our seats, we thought what a great view…until the people infront stood up and we couldn’t see a single thing. My husband is 6ft and he couldn’t see, so how was I sat on a wheelchair going to see. Us disabled don’t just pay all this money to listen to people’s sing whilst look at people’s bottoms. We told the steward we couldn’t see and she just said “I can’t stop them dancing.” Fair enough you can’t, but maybe it would be better to put your disabled customers at the front of a balcony so everybody else is lower. This is what it’s like in the majority or arenas. We were so angry, we went to customer services and they managed to put us in a box, just so that I could see more than a persons bottom. Who designed this area and put disabled people on almost the same level as other people??

My previous negative experience has been playing on my mind recently, as I am returning as a wheelchair user for JLS in a few weeks. I’m really hoping I am not going to end up with the same treatment. I hope somebody acknowledges my disability at the arena when I arrive and supports me with my needs, they makes sure I am comfortable and able to see when others stand during the event….otherwise the arena is not disabled friendly. We do not pay money to listen to music whilst looking at people’s bums. If any issues occur, I will be straight at the box office asking to be moved somewhere else. I will then address this with all the charities such as AccessAbilty to show that you are not disabled friendly like advertising. We disabled people are in touch with lots of apps and charities, that help us find accessible places. I may go as far to say that if I only get a view of a bum this year, I am go to the local paper as I haven’t paid a large sum of money not to see. None of your wheelchair accessible spots are advertised as a restricted view, so I shouldn’t expect one.

Great venue
Oct 2021
Attended a Rock Concert there - first time - and was very impressed. Well organised on the doors, food concessions were well staffed so queues were managed well. The sound quality and overall experience was great

Really easy!
Oct 2021 • Friends
Motorpoint arena was accessible and it was very easy to navigate. The main car park was full as we had not pre booked but they had an overflow car park free at the same price 2 minutes away. The overflow car park was easy to get to with the help of staff and £10 for the evening past 5pm for any event. 10 minutes to the venue from there which was easy.

Inside the venue there was lots of bars and food and we had a huge portion of chips and curry sauce for £5! Really good venue.

Ball & Boe - 28 February 2020
Feb 2020
Not a good evening for me, unfortunately. First mistake was that we sat in our seats at about 6.30pm. First act did not come on till 8 ish and Ball & Boe about 8.40pm. I had had enough by then in the not very comfortable stall seats (on top of the ice rink) which were not tiered in any way so any big head in front meant the view was obscured. Also, there was insufficient space between seats. It is so obviously a 'cram 'em in' situation to get maximum bucks out of the public.
The immediate prelude to the main act was a massive flashing light in your face forcing me to close my eyes. I had to do this several times in the ensuing two hours. Whilst I appreciate they have decent singing voices I found the evening too loud 'shouty' and as far as I was concerned the accoustics were not good. Leicester's De Montfort Hall is far superior - really good accoustics and usually tiered seats in the stalls. But I doubt you can pack enough in there for the likes of Ball & Boe these days though.

Ice arena world junior synchronised skating championships
Mar 2020 • Couples
Partner used her mobility scooter and great disabled platform gave a fantastic view of the championships
Staff and facilities within the arena are excellent
Only slight gripe was ordering a burger hot dog and fries from one of the stands in the concourse .each item came separately and over ten minutes fortunately the burger and dog were foil wrapped so were not cold but this could be sorted for a better experience
But overall a great experience including disabled parking very close to the arena
