Motorpoint Arena Nottingham


Please note that most of the events at Motorpoint Arena have now been rescheduled or cancelled due to Covid-19. Ice skating at the National Ice Centre is still going ahead. 

Situated in the heart of Nottingham city centre, overlooking the historic and ber fashionable Lace Market, the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham has hosted the cream of live music, ice shows and sporting events since its doors first opened to a capacity audience in April 2000. Since this time, Motorpoint Arena Nottingham has gone from strength to strength, building a reputation as a venue that really rocks.

With a seated capacity of 9,300 and a standing capacity of 10,000 there is nowhere quite like the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham. Don't just take our word for it. Ask Sir Elton John. Or Dolly Parton. Or Katy Perry. How about Lee Evans, Rod Stewart, One Direction or Gary Barlow? All these acts sold out at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham and its not just the mainstream names either; bands like Blink 182, The White Stripes, Muse and Sum 41, to name but a few, have all played to capacity crowds. For a full list of forthcoming events, visit the Motorpoint Arena website.

The Motorpoint Arena Nottingham is just minutes from excellent transport links, numerous car parks and a diverse mix of shops, bars, hotels and restaurants.

The Motorpoint Arena Nottingham offers a range of hospitality experiences for individual events including the Spotlight Bar & Restaurant. Whether you’re looking to entertain corporate clients or you’re celebrating a special occasion with family and friends, our hospitality experiences will make any event night even more memorable.
