Attending a live music event this summer? Here’s some handy info for concert-goers:

  • Remember your ticket. You know the feeling – you’re in a busy queue and you can’t find your ticket to get in. Don’t worry! If they’re on your email or mobile app just show that to our ushers and you’re good to go. PS – remember to charge your phone before leaving home. Want a physical ticket? Pop into the Box Office and we will happily print them off for you.
  • Get your drinks and snacks in plenty of time before the event starts. Don’t be frantically checking the time and worrying, so to avoid hearing those first few iconic moments from the foyer, get here early or book your drinks in advance!
  • Don’t throw drinks – We know it’s exciting, but no one wants to be that person, keep those cups in your hands!
  • Don’t talk over quiet songs – Goes without saying really!
  • Have fun! Live music is a massive part of our lives and is so good for our wellbeing, so enjoy every second! See you at the theatre!
