We went to see Disney on Ice does Frozen. Nice size arena. The staff were really nice. Stuff inside was over priced but that's not down to the arena. The toilets were clean. The only downside was sitting on the front row of thar stalls they wouldn't let you get food or drink from the floor, you had to go... More

Went with my daughter to see Placebo.The arena is huge with loads of seats and large standing area.There are plenty of bars and toilets dotted around,although drinks very expensive.Friendly,professional and well organised staff. Easy acess in and out of venue.

I'm assuming this is the right place to review the National Ice Centre, but as one can expect the arena part takes over in every way over actual ice skating. As a user of the old ice rink, it was exciting news when we heard Nottingham was going to get a state of art multi million ice rink. But my... More

The night before my friend's wedding we went to see the mighty panthers play! Nice arena easy enough to get in and the food was a little overpriced but such is life in a venue. Good transport routes and great that it is in the city centre which is a massive boost

A fantastic arena. We were up in the gods and still felt like part of the show. The acoustics are great. It was nice to see that the souvenirs were still on sale after the show which saves trying to keep hold of them.

Got to arena for 5 as the doors should have opened then but instead stood in the freezing cold till 5:45, why give times and don't use them? Security was good with polite staff other than a woman dressed in black pretending to be on a radio. Finally got inside and the food and drink was pathetic with no choice... More

We are so lucky to live near such a thriving resource there is such a great range of events on at the Arena all year round, the only problem is that they are so expensive we can only go to a set number. The staff are always very helpful and polite, the venue runs events very smoothly. There are good... More

Great arena. Good view. I think view would be good from any angle. Food a bit pricey, but good quality.
