More Information

Babes in Arms and Toddlers

For some family and children’s shows, the producer will include a ‘babes in arms’ policy.

Patrons will need a complimentary ticket for any under 2-year olds – who will be required to sit on the knee of a paying adult.

Once this ticket has been added, a seat number will be assigned. This is simply to register the occupancy of the venue. The child can remain with you.

Please note: there are shows which don’t have a specific Babes-in-Arms policy. This may because the show isn’t suitable for those under 2, and in which case, you wouldn’t be permitted to enter the auditorium. There are a small number of performances specifically programmed for under 2s, and therefore don’t have a Babes-in-Arms policy – all entrants will need a ticket. Please check each show on our website for details.
