First visit here, Very well laid out, good atmosphere, helpful staff. Liked the size - big enough to attract top shows, but not too huge like some of the arenas. Excellent acoustics. Did find the seats a little hard though.

A well managed venue with plenty of space and numerous bars. No long queues for drinks and plenty of staff on hand to manage things. Venue not overcrowded with ample chill-out zones for when things get too hot. Madness? Sublime, as always.

Fantastic safety organisation. Seating was quite good as in comfortability and you could see perfectly well wherever you were sitting. Sound was incredible. The whole theatre was like a big family party, dancing and singing in the isles. A most incredible experience.
