Floor-to-ceiling black drapes frame the space for exhibitions, awards dinners, and other special events.

The Arena adjoins Shed 6 and the arcade area which allow for further breakout spaces, poster sessions and catering.

I just wanted to say how AMAZING you were and your event staff were at the TSB Arena. There was nothing to big or to small that you could accomplish for us and it made the event run so smoothly.
