I went for a UCAS conference so the centre was packed with people but still had room for us to sit down and eat. The weather was very poor but they had controlled heating to make us as comfortable as possible. There was not a line for the toilets despite the large crowd so there were plenty available. Food was served hot and quickly.

Saw little mix. great venue for Kent. Hope they do more gigs as it's great for the county. Get the bus to it for gigs.

Think this is a great event area for the people of Kent, many different types of events are held here during the year,it depends which event is being held to what is on site,the flower show I attended had plenty of stalls to see and plenty of places to eat and drink,loos were on site and were kept nice and clean,had a lovely time whilst there.

4 stars for the evening had an amazing time watching Little Mix. Unfortunately it took 2 and a half hours to leave the venue. Not sure what happened but not very organised in getting all the cars out. Definitely will double think if attending this venue again.

If everyone has to stand anyway, why not situate the stage so more of the crowd could see?? Plenty of slopes to utilize. That being said, crowd control was exceptional, security seemed brilliant. A great venue for family concert. Now if you could just get us out if the car park in less than 2 hours!!
