I attended this excellent venue to watch a jack and the beanstalk pantomime. Everything was brilliant. The carpark was great, loads of spaces and hassle free. On entering the building the staff were so helpful and accommodating. They all acted in a professional manner and were extremely polite. There is a small cafe which is very reasonably priced and the... More

Arena was spotlessly clean and staff were very polite and helpful. Went with my grandchildren to see jack & the beanstalk panto, fab production with plenty of laughs and lots of audience participation! If your looking for a family panto you should definitely go here!! Just great!!

I have been going to Middleton arena for a little under a year now. The gym classes are fantastic especially with Matt he adds lots of variety and changes it up every week! Very friendly atmosphere and worth the money!

I've been to pantomimes in the arena , Regularly go swimming here, and drop my son off during school holidays to partake in fun days.. The staff seemed well trained and I feel confident leaving my young son in their care whilst he does various activities. Great value,

The swimming pools here are very clean, fresh looking and bright. The little pool is nice and shallow enough for my kids to stand but also deep enough to swim and play underwater. The main pool is absolutely freezing! Ok if your swimming up and down but if you are staying in the shallow end playing with the kids it... More

First time at this Arena, & can honestly say we were very impressed. The Arena incorporates a leisure center too. Really enjoyed the Houghton Weavers & the Middleton Band's. It was The Houghton Weavers 40th Anniversary Tour, they were brilliant. It was also really great to see the 'junior' Middleton Band, lovely to see so many youngsters really enjoying &... More
