  • Great venue. Good parking. Wheelchair access and parking. Can be cold if the weather outside is cold. Drinks and snacks highly priced. Can be mad when leaving as everyone wants to go. I see people leaving before the end. If you are enjoying your show STAY.
  • I love Sheffield arena. I mean, apart from hosting the mighty Iron Maiden, the venue staff and fun and friendly and everything you'd expect from northern hospitality. Recommend finding some of the back streets near the venue for cheaper/free parking.
  • Been here loads to see shows and stuff and other conventions. The staff are friendly and helpful when asked, and they try to make the stadium as clean as it can be. Food is the regular good old stadium food, but can be a bit expensive. Parking is also a nightmare, as it costs a tenner to go in the arena car park, and all the backstreets in the area have double yellows. Also really annoying trying to leave after a show as there is only one exit from the car park.
  • THE PLACE IS TOO BLOODY HOT. COME ON IT'S 2017 GET SOME PROPER AIR CONDITIONING. Everyone in the place said it was uncomfortable and it spoiled a fabulous night of music. No excuses as I've been to Manchester arena in 32 degrees and the air con there is outstanding.
  • Not my favourite arena but decent shows always on. Quite a small venue compared to others but this is actually a good thing as if you're at the back still get a good view. Expensive drinks. Staff are helpful though.
