Recently voted Best New Venue in the World 2014 at the Stadium Business Awards, the First Direct Arena has played host to some incredible artists since opening in 2013, including Sir Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Bublé, Prince and Fleetwood Mac. Hot dates for 2017 include Little Mix, Kings of Leon, Drake and comedy superstar John Bishop. Visit www.firstdirectarena.com for the latest dates and ticket information and book in with The New Ellington hotel at the same time!
The Leed’s Arena’s unique "super theatre" style is designed to enhance the arena experience, with all seats facing the stage and high quality acoustics providing the best sound experience in the UK. The style creates a more intimate atmosphere with reduced viewing distances inside the venue which has a capacity of 13,000.
After an exciting night at the arena, stop by The Gin Garden at our relaxing Leeds hotel and enjoy one of the many different gins or perhaps a cocktail. The bar offers an array of classics, fruity and seasonally inspired concoctions to keep you amused and entertained. The New Ellington also serves a carefully selected range of wines and beers.
The New Ellington is a great hotel to stay in. The rooms are very spacious and the staff are the best I have ever come across. They made us feel like part of a big family and were very helpful. I will definitely be back for another visit.
