The two-year framework agreement for improvements to ‘public areas’ is divided into two phases, the latter focusing on detailed design.

The 12,700-seater venue opened in 1991 as the UK’s largest indoor arena and was the venue for television hit Gladiators and the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 12pm on 29 June.
