    Good size gig. Has basketball matches, ice facility's and music. A little pricy for amenities like food and drink but it's to be expected. Starting to look a little dated.  more »

  • Getting in and out of the venue is easy but once inside queues for the bar and toilets are long. The venue was very warm the last time I was there. Find your seat is fairly easy.
  • Have been to multiple gigs at the arena over the years. Always really easy to get through security and get to your seat. Getting out of the arena at the end of the gig is also quick. The arena attracts really good artists and the sound quality is great.
  • Good transport access. Relatively easy entrance and exit. Unfortunately acoustics are crap for a music venue. Not enough toilets and food/drink is overpriced as usual at these venues. The seating is also very cramp. Staff have always been good thou and the place seems well run.
  • Wheelchair access was very good. Visited for first time 13/5/17. Staff were excellent. Not really a complaint but be aware that the sound quality isn't great, very echo-y so it depends on how important that is; also be aware that the seats are very small and uncomfortable.
  • Somewhere to go to big artists. Typically over priced and scruffy. Reasonable security
