It’s always best to check the age restrictions for each event in advance as they vary from show to show.
All shows are 14+ but if you're under 16 - we'll translate - that means if you're between 14 years and 16 years, you'll need to come with an adult (someone 18+) please.
If it says 14+, 16+, 18+, 21+… be sure to check before you book and remember to carry proof of age if you need it.
