Thank you for a fantastic well organised evening of superb entertainment. We came to the Paul Eaton and Jacqui Abbott concert 24.6.16. My wife is disabled and from the moment we arrived, we were directed to the disabled car park close to the arena with it's own entrance, advised by the stewards of where to go and what to do when it was time to leave. The evening was fantastic with two great support artists and the main act we came to see. The atmosphere was great and the food and drink outlets gave great choice at reasonable prices. Even when it was time to go home, things were still brilliantly organised and we were able to leave the site with no delays or queues. A fantastic all round experience and we'll definitely be coming back next year! Thanks again, Richard and Linda Hughes

I attended the British Military Fitness session on Saturday morning and thought it was great! Fab surroundings and a great work out! I hope they keep these up as I would most definitely recommend them to anyone.
