Very organised event in lovely surroundings. The quo was excellent. Easy to vacate the arena and a bus service back to scarborough centre.

“overpriced drinks”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

the venue as a whole is good apart from the usual toilet problems never enough ladies toilets, however not allowed to take your own food or drink into the venue, the only reason I can see for this is the provision of an overpriced bar food prices not too bad.

“What a great night!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Went to this fabulous venue last night to see Status Quo along with their special guests Uriah Heep. What a great night! All drinks & food were very reasonably price for a gig & what a wonderful venue. We had front row seats but no matter were you sat you would have a good view. Hope to visit again sometime.
