A secondary 400 club space, Underground, has a state of the art PA, lighting grid, DJ booth and A/V equipment and is perfectly positioned to host the very best specialist club events and function as an additional area, pre and post gigs in the main auditorium.

Ant and Dec (18/08/14) - Amazing
The show was so funny, we had jaw ache from laughing so much I would highly recommend it to anyone. Our seats were excellent and we had a great view of everything that went on Brilliant
Lee Nicholas, 17/07/14
Dear First direct arena, Thank you so so much for an absolute amazing venue... I have been going to gigs around the country since my first at Bradford St Georges hall in 1987 aged 14 (Anthrax). I have been to most of the arenas in this country, and a few other countries but yours is by far the best. The sound at Pearl Jam was superb as was the view, air con, facilities and staff. It was all top notch thank you. I paid for the VIP upgrade which due to traffic we managed to only pick up our passes before the start of the gig but it looked nice. Just bad luck and didnt change a superb night. Thanks again and I have already been spreading the word about your superb venue. Thanks again Lee Ps sorry to the staff for Pearl Jam going on way longer than planned but it made all of our nights... Sent from my iPhone
Pearl Jam (17/07/14) - Outstanding
Pearl Jam were their usual superb self.... And playing for almost 3 1/2 hours was fantastic! If not for the poor staff.... Thanks again for a superb venue and and for bringing my favourite band to my home county.... Cant wait for the next time..... Lee

Team Presentation Opening Ceremony (08/07/14) - For fans only
Evening was most interesting if a cycling fan as it gave the opportunity to see all the riders and bikes. However, the tickets were way overpriced for this event as the entertainment, which was presumably included to justify the high prices, was not great and there was not much of it. The main event was billed to be held from 6.30 to 9pm but it was over by 8.30. Prices in the range £20-£40 would have been more appropriate.
