It was twenty years ago today when Manchester Arena first opened its doors to the public for a spectacular performance from Torvill and Dean. Around 15,000 people came to the show that night and we've entertained millions since then with twenty years of great sport, comedy, family and music events. 

We'd like to thank everyone who has shared their Arena memories with us so far. Keep an eye out on our twitter and facebook posts throughout the day, as we share more amazing memories.
