We came here to the national British indoors athletics champs. It was very hot inside. You definetely should wear short sleeves, shorts and flipflops. British athletics should issue a warning on their website to warn people before world indoor champs. It's not pleasant to sit...More

This venue, along with so many others, has little trouble getting people in. The problems always seem to occur when lots of bodies are all aiming for exits at the end of the event. In this case a majority were trying for the Birmingham Canal...More

BK stands for block. so you are in Block C Row A, which will be the first row. Block B is right in the middle in front of the stage, and block A and block C are either side of it. Either way you've got great seats!

The audio is pretty good in there so you should be ok, we always sit on ground level if we can hope you are ok with heights, as those seats are quite high and steep from what I remember.
