Main arena floor update

Update 25 October 2023

Earlier in the year Quaycentre’s main arena floor unfortunately suffered some water damage. Whilst we were able to make the floor safe and continue on with some of our events and activities, the damage is substantial and has resulted in the floor needing to be replaced.

We are happy to confirm that we will be working with AURA SPORT commencing January 2024 on removing the damaged floor and replacing it with a new floor. However as a result, we are sorry to confirm that the main arena will be unavailable for between January - May 2024.

Our Hall of Legends remains open and our Events team will continue to work with our regular clients on rescheduling or looking at alternatives for the second half of 2024 and into 2025.

When complete, the new floor will retain all the current benefits and advantages we have been able to offer.

We look forward to your return on the new floor in May 2024.
