  • Great all round arena with great facilities and great views. I was on the Upper Tier and from what I read before going to the arena was that the Upper Tier at Manchester was a no go area for people wh...  read more »
  • Brilliant day out And for £12 the on site parking is a no brainer next time will be for john bishop. Only downside is there aren't many pay stations for the car park 
  • We loved it as always but as this years theme is frozen it's really not for boy's, there's usually a mix of all the Disney characters involved but this year it mainly stuck to the original plot. We st...  read more »
  • Massive arena in the heart of the city. Drinks are expensive but the queues were short. Seating had decent amount of leg room. There was no queuing to leave after the event. Good venue.
  • Great light system and sound. Went to see A-HA and it was great. Parked in Viaduct st it's free after 6pm on bank holidays ☺ only let down is you're not allowed to take in your own food or drink. Ladies handbags are looked in and you're told to drink it or bin it. I just hid my drink inside my jacket lol 😜 this is done so that you have to buy from inside the stadium at massively high prices...
  • First time I have been here in years. Watched Hans Zimmer and the layout meant no matter where you were you can clearly see the stage. I wouldnt buy any food or drink as prices are extortionate for less than basic food and drink.
  • Disappointed with the vip package and I blame the arena not muse. I have vertigo (motion induced not height) so I cannot use lifts.i was directed to the stairs but not told what floor to go to.after getting lost with my 8yr old I ended up in a cramped room which held both the bar and the museum,these were advertised as separate but were together so it was hard to see the exhibition through the que of people for the bar.not enough seating for so many direction whatsoever,I had to ask 3 different staff if I could go to my seat in the arena and how to get was an absolute joke considering the £285 two tickets cost me.also the package mentioned a wristband,this turned out to be a paper one and not a proper fabric one.
  • First time in the arena and well impressed. Good access via public transport. Food and drink inside are pricey (events venue so kind of expected)
