We were lucky enough to be invited to a VIP suite at the arena for the Wet Wet Wet concert.  What an amazing experience it was, from arriving at the VIP entrance to be greeted by polite helpful staff to the suite itself which had an amazing view of the stage.  The suite was very well equipped to both watch the concert & enjoy the company of everyone in the party.  The host couldn't do enough to help make our evening very enjoyable one.

Ten out of Ten first direct arena!!

first direct arena & Lisa Turton have always provided us with an excellent service before and during high profile events and concerts. I would like to pass on my thanks to all involved.
I cannot speak highly enough of the great hospitality we have always received at this Venue and would recommend a VIP suite for large groups or special occasions. As an event manager myself and having visited on several occasions I appreciate seamless service and operational excellence and you can be rest assured first direct arena has both.

My friends/family and I have never had a bad experience and will continue our loyalty in attendance to great events in the future.

I have booked suites for both personal and business purposes. Both times were great, really comfortable, fantastic view and great to have your own bartender. It’s the perfect way to entertain clients and for a night out with friends plus you have the bar right there so you don’t miss a thing
