General Rules

Smoking areas are located on Level 2 of the Arena, at either ends of the concourses away from the main stairs.

Unfortunately for Health and Safety reasons, there will not be an opportunity for the general public to leave and re-enter the venue. A strict policy of no re-admission to the venue will be enforced.

Electronic cigarettes are not permitted for use inside, due to the sophistication of these devices, it is increasingly difficult to identify guests in the auditorium smoking compared to those smoking electronic cigarettes. To assist with this, guests who wish to use these devices are requested to use the external smoking areas.

Children Rules

There are no age restrictions to any shows, unless requested by the visiting artist, however we request that no children under 14 come unaccompanied and we also advise that no under 14s go on the floor for standing floor shows.
Please be aware that during concerts people may stand up.

Miscellaneous

Can I bring a camera into the Arena?

The official policy of the Arena and the touring shows, forming part of the conditions of sale when you purchase a ticket, is that the unauthorised use of cameras, video and any other form of recording equipment (including iPad's / tablets) is strictly prohibited. However, some of the shows do permit the use of small digital cameras including, in many cases, 'bridge' cameras (larger digital cameras with zoom lenses that cannot be removed). For the avoidance of any confusion 'professional' cameras with removable and interchangeable lenses are always prohibited. Unfortunately, the camera policy for a specific show is typically only confirmed on the day of the event. We would advise that if you choose to bring a small digital camera to the Arena you must be prepared not to use it if requested not to do so.

Why can I not take my own food into first direct arena?

In accordance with common practice it is our policy not to allow guests to bring their own food and beverage into the building. The arena endeavors to raise awareness to customers of this policy via out website and on tickets. Glass and Can containers are not permitted within our venue.

A varied range of refreshments is available inside the venue:

Primo’s Gourmet Hot Dogs, Spicy Chicken Fillet Burger, Chicago Town Pizza, fresh local green salad pots, kettle crisps and Yorvale Ice Creams.

What should I bring with me?

Patrons are advised to bring the least amount of belongings possible. Small bags are permitted but may be subject to searches and, at some events, may be removed from standing floor ticket-holders for collection afterwards. The unauthorised use of cameras, video or any other form of recording equipment (including iPad's / tablets) is strictly prohibited. 35mm cameras are permitted at most events but professional cameras with a detachable zoom lens are not, therefore please leave at home.

At certain events, the promoter may request a ban on all photography and signs to this effect will be displayed at all entrances. No food or drink is to be brought into the venue. Banners are also prohibited. Large golfing style umbrellas should not be brought to the venue as they will not be permitted on safety grounds, however small (handbag / briefcase style) umbrellas will be permitted.

Will there be any pyros-lasers-strobes at the event I'm attending?

Most shows have some form of flashing lighting or strobes. Signage is displayed around the concourse to advise people if pyros - lasers or strobes will be in use.
