What’s new?

It really is amazing what a difference a change makes... Especially a £26m one!

From the canal side restaurants to the vibrant Wonder Wall to the brand spanking new Sky Needles that light up Birmingham’s skyline, the list goes on. And on, and on. 

Here at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham we’ve always been good at attracting crowds. So much better than following them if you ask us. It’s because we believe it’s good to be different, that change isn’t something to fear. So back in May 2013 we kicked off our grand redevelopment plans, where a whopping £26m would be spent on the Arena over 18 months to turn it into the must-visit home of live entertainment in Birmingham City Centre.

Since work began the whole building’s been given a, let’s be honest, much needed facelift with a supercool glass fronted façade and new canal side restaurants and seating areas. Further awesomeness comes from the Sky Needles that add some night-time glitz and glamour to Birmingham’s skyline. Then there’s the increased seating and standing capacities, so even more of you can get your live entertainment fix. We could go on, but it’s way more fun seeing the changes up close and personal.
