Security Information

Manchester Arndale Security Incident (Friday 11 October 2019)

Your safety and security is of the utmost importance to us. To make sure your visit is as safe as possible, we have a series of visible and discreet measures in place across our building 24-hours a day. This includes security searches prior to your entry to the building.

Further to the incident at Manchester Arndale (Friday 11 October 2019) we have increased security measures at our main entrance. To assist us with these checks we would ask that you refrain from bringing large bags to the venue as this could cause delays to your admittance.

Please note: Anyone who declines a security search will not be admitted.

If you are attending a theatre performance, please ensure that you arrive with plenty of time for these security checks to take place, particularly if you are collecting tickets from the box office counter.

If you do have a large bag with you and you are attending a theatre performance, as well as it being searched on arrival, we will insist the item is checked into our cloakroom (at a cost of £1 per item) as large bags are not allowed in the theatre auditorium.

Our security measures are under constant review and we reserve the right to change arrangements at short notice. Thank you for your co-operation.
