“Ice show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The arena itself is good, on this occasion, the front row seats we had booked ages in advance wasn't available on the night, we were very disappointed and ended up being moved from one side of the arena to the other which was unacceptable. The show itself was good. I find there is a general lack of co-ordination where staff are concerned, it could be so much better.

“One time visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went to the arena to see Andre Reiu in concert. I must say from the moment we entered the arena we were treated very well as though we were the only people there ( 5700) were there.
The venue was very well organised with a large number of staff who were prepared to help everyone to their seats well done capital arena.

“Big venue, acoustics can be poor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

If you want to see some great Ice Hockey, get down to the arena to watch the Panthers - this is really where the Arena comes to life and what it was originally intended for.

For concerts, the acoustics are often poor, I went with my nieces to see JLS and their voices were often drowned out but the band. However, I also saw Sigurd Ros there and they were incredible with some very good acoustics, so it may depend on the quality of the sound test,

As with most arenas the drinks and food are expensive and they don't take arms so make sure you have cash if you are visiting. There is a cash point just outside (back entrance) And also one inside opposites he box office, I think.

You can also go ice skating here on the public skating rink which is great fun. Costs approx £8 for a 2-hour session.

“Andre Rieu Concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Me and my wife went to this arena on December the 12th 2013 for the concert by Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra. What an evening it was. The arena was easy to get into and out of. The concert lasted some 3 and a half hours, the facilities were top class as were the staff. They were so helpful and it made the 500 mile round trip from Cornwall to Nottingham well worth it. It was just a fantastic evening.
