Seen some of my favourite people here and had the best time. Very well organised too. A fantastic place for shows and concerts.

Great venue with comfy seats and good views. The food and drink stalls are very slow to serve and overpriced. Took 1 hour to get a tea/coffee and there were only about 12 people ahead of us. Then they put milk in my mint tea!

Good venue for a gig but expensive to eat there and awful to get out of the car park. No one to direct the traffic out.

Lovely venue, but spent more time trying to exit the car park than probably at the event itself. Poor signage and lack of organisation for the car park late at night after an event.

I first came here in 1982 to see Status Quo, and have since been many times (Metallica, Iron Maiden, Ultravox, Simply Red, U2, etc). Virtually all the major touring acts come here, so get on the mailing list and book early. Depending on the act,...More
