Security

Your safety and security is our top priority. Working together with local and national authorities, security measures at the Arena are under constant review to ensure that they remain effective and proportionate. Security measures in place include tailored venue search and scan operations, strategically placed security personnel, intelligence led CCTV monitoring. Please be reassured that whilst you may not see all operational security activity, our team are always working hard behind the scenes to ensure your safety. Searches: In the interests of safety and security, a search and / or magnetic scan will take place. Please allow additional time for this process, we will aim to keep any queues moving as quickly as possible. The security search process is a condition of entry. Any refusal or the use of abusive, threatening or discriminatory remarks, including comments relating to weapons or explosives will result in access being refused. Please note that alcohol and unauthorised substances are not permitted in the venue. Such items will be confiscated, and entry may be refused. Bag Policy: We advise where possible that you avoid bringing any bags larger than A4-sized to the venue (i.e., rucksacks, suitcases, etc) to the venue as they will not be allowed into the auditorium, and cloakroom space is limited. Any bags larger than this will be required to be stored in the cloakroom at a charge. All bags will be searched before entry is permitted.
