Reviews and Additional Information

  1. Watched High School Musical on Friday night – fantastic show, great venue, helpful staff. We had 4 children with us and the only complaint was the prices of refreshments/sweets. £7 for popcorn or candy floss!!!

  2. Fantastic Facility – Built to perfection for watching concerts/indoor events, really not a bad seat or view in the house. Atmosphere generated is truly amazing too – think that’s down to the Scousers though! All in all provides a brilliant experience especially after just watching Coldplay!
