Fiona C 29 Apr Sat, 29 April 2017
Pros: Bruno Mars!
Cons: Getting your taxi is a mission when you don't know the area.
Lorraine P 27 Apr Thu, 27 April 2017
Went to see Bruno Mars at Barclaycard Arena; very nice venue with lots of food choice.
Pros: The location of the arena.
Margaret S 18 Apr Tue, 18 April 2017
All good. Staff helpful and friendly. Stayed the night at the Campanile Hotel - very good move.
Pros: Seeing (just about) Bruno Mars.
Cons: Wish it had bigger screens or one on top of the stage as you really can't see from the back.
Kevin S 12 Apr Wed, 12 April 2017
Went to see Billy Elliot. First class performance; enjoyed every minute.
Pros: Plenty of restaurant choices in the area.
Rebekah 9 Apr Sun, 9 April 2017
Pros: First time attending a Comedy Store show and loved every minute from start to end!
Mar 6 Apr Thu, 6 April 2017
Awesome experience in such a great venue for the second time. Absolutely gorgeous views of the sea; nice staff working there who make it even more pleasant; Rick Astley's gig was an amazing experience.
Pros: Absolutely pleasant venue with great views by the sea; also the staff was really professional and nice.
Georgia S 4 Apr Tue, 4 April 2017
Pros: The bands.
Deborah R 31 Mar Fri, 31 March 2017
Pros: Good lay out in bar and arena area.
Cons: The queue management was poor. Security staff didn't have a clue. Concert goers with online tickets reached the doors only to be sent back to queue again at the Ticket Office to exchange online tickets for proper tickets, and then queue a third time to get in! We were there primarily to see Banfi, the support band and only got in in time due to the kindness of other concert goers who let us jump the third queue!
Ronnie 31 Mar Fri, 31 March 2017
Mrs Brown's Boys was alright but it was old material that I had seen a few times.
Pros: It was alright but seen it before.
Cons: Same as above.
Tracy 26 Mar Sun, 26 March 2017
Pros: Seeing Olly Murs.
Dawn W 22 Mar Wed, 22 March 2017
Excellent venue. Very well organised. Staff were most helpful.
Mr L 21 Mar Tue, 21 March 2017
First time I had ever been and the atmosphere was great.
Pros: The whole concert.
Cons: The seating could have done with more leg room but with it being such a good concert I didn't mind.
Annmarie 20 Mar Mon, 20 March 2017
This was my first time in the concert hall and I really liked how cosy and relaxing it is. Much better than all the bigger places.
Pros: All seats had a good view.
Dirk 19 Mar Sun, 19 March 2017
Schools National Cross-Country Championships. Well organised. Several thousand participants with accompanying family supporters.
Pros: Dry underfoot. Good, spacious parking, well directed. Toilets.
Cons: Exit. Long queues, leading directly onto a roundabout. Tricky if you are not familiar with the layout.
Kirstie T 17 Mar Fri, 17 March 2017
Pros: Intimate gig.
Cons: All good.
Odran 17 Mar Fri, 17 March 2017
The story line was very weak but the dancing in the show was brilliant. Poor access was an issue with only one person on one door allowing patrons to enter following a security check that was nominal to say the least.
Pros: The dancing in the show.
Cons: The access to theatre with a nominal and largely waste of time security check.
Ian B 13 Mar Mon, 13 March 2017
Titanic Live. Remarkable event. The film and orchestral delivery was the best I have ever seen.
Pros: Everything. Best thing ever.
Richard R 13 Mar Mon, 13 March 2017
The Stranglers were in their best form yet. The Ruts DC were fantastic too. Just a brilliant night!
Pros: Excellent seating with good view. Good bar facilities.
Cons: Pity the outside of the building looks so tatty.
John 7 Mar Tue, 7 March 2017
It's a lovely theatre, but of it's period, so narrow walkways/stairways.
Pros: The play we went to see: Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf.
Cons: The raking of the seats (in the stalls) is too shallow, so our view of the stage was obscured by people in front of us.
Dawn M 24 Feb Fri, 24 February 2017
Didn't even know this place existed but would recommend for a concert anytime.
Pros: Not too large a venue for a concert; plenty of toilets and refreshment stands.
Cons: Choice of merchandise at the refreshments stands wasn't great and very overpriced.
Roland 21 Feb Tue, 21 February 2017
Pros: Atmosphere; sound.
Cons: The bar is too small.
Margaret 20 Feb Mon, 20 February 2017
Will definitely go again.
Pros: The group.
Paul B 19 Feb Sun, 19 February 2017
Fantastic gig as usual by Chuck Prophet and The Mission Express, which suited the venue perfectly. Can't praise it enough.
Pros: The concert room was a good size - intimate but not uncomfortably so. Stage a good size for a five piece and good P.A. Well stocked bar.
Colin 12 Feb Sun, 12 February 2017
Pros: The show Mamma Mia.
Graeme 10 Feb Fri, 10 February 2017
Pros: The venue has a real atmosphere to it; excellent service and it's a great place to see live bands.
Shaun D 25 Jan Wed, 25 January 2017
Pros: Great sound; not too big; cold beer.
Terry C 25 Jan Wed, 25 January 2017
Pros: The variation of machines on show.
Cons: The price of food and coffee.
Chris 11 Jan Wed, 11 January 2017
My two fave bands and they played long sets - brilliant atmosphere.
Pros: Great show.
Cynthia B 7 Jan Sat, 7 January 2017
Cinderella Panto at Kings Theatre. Excellent.
Pros: All excellent.
Angela 5 Jan Thu, 5 January 2017
Pros: Good view of stage; comfortable seats.
Cons: Disappointing performance but that was not the fault of the Concert Hall. No significant criticism of Concert Hall.
Miranda 5 Jan Thu, 5 January 2017
Excellent venue for shows; the staff were efficient and the seats were good.
Pros: Clean and spacious.
Cons: No, although it got a bit chilly with the air con on.
Sandra 29 Dec Thu, 29 December 2016
A wonderful show and a lovely experience.
Pros: Thriller very good.
Cons: Just the seating pitch of an old theatre.
Heather 24 Dec Sat, 24 December 2016
Strangest venue I have ever been in. If you are upstairs you go down a long hallway to different doors to get to your seats. Not bad, just weird. Seems like it could use some updating.
Pros: Sound was great. Good view from the balcony.
Cons: The crowd in the balcony sat the whole show! Come on - DANCE!
Nigel 23 Dec Fri, 23 December 2016
Pros: Entertainment 1st class.
Victoria 19 Dec Mon, 19 December 2016
Great evening all round.
Pros: Seth L
Steve N 18 Dec Sun, 18 December 2016
Pros: Great venue. Great gig!
Paul 17 Dec Sat, 17 December 2016
Nice bar facility; great seats and a great show.
Pros: Super show.
Stephanie T 15 Dec Thu, 15 December 2016
This wasn't a sell out concert so lots of concerns I had after reading Facebook reviews of the venue weren't applicable. Good bar service; clean toilets; great acoustics; friendly security.
Pros: Great acoustics.
Jane R 15 Dec Thu, 15 December 2016
It was a great experience.
Pros: The whole show was brilliant.
Ian 14 Dec Wed, 14 December 2016
Rod Stewart was excellent.
Pros: Venue access and egress.
Cons: We were high up in the venue - could have done with better TV screening of the event.
Kay E 13 Dec Tue, 13 December 2016
First time visit here, also first visit to Milton Keynes. Lovely small venue which created a marvellous atmosphere. Stayed at nearby hotel. Decided to find the venue when arriving in Milton Keynes during daylight, which turned out to be a good idea - may have been a problem trying to find it in darkness, given that we were unfamiliar with the many roundabouts, plus the country lane where the Stables is situated. Great venue, will definitely come again.
Pros: Small intimate venue; great atmosphere.
Bridie 12 Dec Mon, 12 December 2016
Fantastic show; staff in the VIP lounge were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Nothing, it was all good.
Esther L 11 Dec Sun, 11 December 2016
Pros: Beautiful theatre and show was great fun.
Cons: Would have liked Wendy to sing more than 1 song as she is a great singer.
Yvonne P 11 Dec Sun, 11 December 2016
A brilliant venue; acoustics excellent; seating good; also a good view wherever you are seated; been many times, will continue to do so.
Pros: Seeing the Jools Holland.
Susan C 10 Dec Sat, 10 December 2016
I was very impressed with the Motor Point Arena.
Pros: They always put on a good concert.
Kay W 15 Nov Tue, 15 November 2016
Noel.W 14 Nov Mon, 14 November 2016
It was great a experience for me for sure; first time in London overnight; the show was the greatest show I have ever seen - the great Kenny Rogers.
Pros: Kenny and his fantastic music.
Cons: No, all was excellent - the best night ever.
Paula 13 Nov Sun, 13 November 2016
We saw the musical 'Beautiful' based on the early career of singer/songwriter Carole King and enjoyed it immensely. The theatre was easy to find and within walking distance of our hotel and the restaurant we ate in pre-performance. The theatre has a cosy and friendly atmosphere, and the seats we had reserved were first class, though my view of the stage was somewhat hampered due to the fidgeting, stretching and head rolling of the chap in the seat in front of mine! However, this did not detract from what was a hugely enjoyable evening/birthday treat for my husband and me.
Pros: Friendly, efficient staff. Good atmosphere. Comfortable seats.
Cons: More leg room would have been nice, but nothing in the visit could be described as 'bad'.
Linda G 12 Nov Sat, 12 November 2016
Sheila L 12 Nov Sat, 12 November 2016
Queen Extravaganza - best tribute band I've ever seen.
