    Although the staff are great help & do have everything under control when in the room outside the stage I wouldn't recommend going early as it stinks of chips, beer and doughnuts !!

    The big drinks are £2.50 but by the time the show starts you'll be sick of holding it, people tip them on the floor. Share a drink with a few straws!

    Pointless queuing up early to get to the front as have two separate queues and open up doors at separate times. So people who turned after you at the other queue has a high chance of getting to front

    Went to see Nicki Minaj here. It was a pretty intimate arena, small compared to others. On the plus it means we were closer to the stage. Arrange a lift. Don't even attempt to get a taxi!

    Absolute shambles when it came to queueing. Queued all day to get to the front at blink and then they split the queue into two doors and let the other door open first. Security were assholes too

    If you go straight to the box office and pay cash you avoid the HEFTY booking fees incurred through paying by card.

    Whatever you do don't park in the official car park - look behind the discovery museum!
