Venue opening times
We’ll have opening times, stage times (if we know them on show days) and curfew times if they’re out of the ordinary for seasoned gig-goers (7pm-11pm) on the event page of this website and on our social channels, too. All timings are subject to change, so check before you travel.
The venue box office is open from 12 noon to 4pm, Monday-Saturday. Opening times will be different on bank holidays, so do check.
We have bars (of course), a cloakroom to leave your stuff and if you’re visiting us for the first time, just ask any of our friendly staff to show you the way. Please try and travel light as cloakroom facilities are limited, so if you really need to bring a bag, please make sure that it is small (laptop size or small handbag).
It’s always best to check the age restrictions for each event in advance as they vary from show to show.
A few obvious ones:
No under 8s please (think about it), but feel free to contact us if you’re unsure and avoid disappointment.
8-13 years, you’ll need to attend with an adult (18+).
14+, 16+, 18+, 21+… be sure before you book and remember to carry proof of age if you it.
