The arena is just that. An arena.
It serves a purpose, one it has done quite well over the almost quarter of a century it has been open. It is ideally situated, just off the city centre and right by a rail and tram station,...More
Have been to many a concert at this Arena in Manchester it's starting to slow it's age. It's has good transport links with road and train. Parking has never been a problem but like with every concert getting out can be tricky at the end...More

omg i was expecting to be stuck in security for forever but i have got to say they were on the ball,they asked me to make sure my bag was open so they could put some sort of stick in there,they asked that i put everythg i had in my pockets out so they could check but i have got to say i felt very secure going through the process,they were all very professional and very polite.i would not arrive too early just to go through security,,they all do their job 100% and know what they are doing so everyone and everything runs like a dream.x
