Over the years I have attended many and varied performances at the MEC. Thanks to volunteers for their hard work. Musicals of the standard of the city productions or better. Support local talent. Everything from schools, community to visiting productions. Well done everyone!

A great entertainment centre. Supervised by volunteers. Seating layout is great. The worst seats in the house are better than the average in many venues. Very comfortable seats. Good lighting & sound with fly tower. Reasonable prices.

Went there recently to see Roy Orbison (Dean Bourne) and the Everly Bros (Robertson Bros) tribute show. The show was fantastic. The likeness of Dean's voice to the real Roy Orbison was uncanny and sent a shiver down our spines! It was a humid night...More
