I would have thought in this day and age that they would make more effort not to use so many single use cups. In one gig there must be 1000s that go in the rubbish. I brought my own reusable cup wanting to do my...More

I went there to watch the X Factor live tour and it was amazing. Wherever you are un the arena you can see the stage clearly. Loads of staff helping you to get to your seats. BEST DAY EVER

Do not have seats on the floor area. Sat next to a rather large lady and had to stand all night. Seats to close together, uncomfortable and all crammed in.

Arena was very central to all places that we needed to go, easy to reach your normal fast food and drinks inside but looks like it needs a good lick of paint and upgraded a bit on the inside.

Visited to watch Tears for Fears (supported by Alison Moyet). A really great evening, both acts @ their best & a wonderfully nostalgic evening. Venue excellent (no issues with food or toilets)

Probably one of the best areas in the arena. To be fair the arena is fairly small, so wherever you sit would be ok.
