Families at the Arena

The Arena Theatre is a Family Arts Standard venue, and we strive to make both our programme and building as family friendly as possible - ensuring your small ones enjoy all the Arena has to offer from their very first visit.

Below are just some of the ways we ensure we are family friendly, but we are always open to suggestions to improve our provision.

If you have any suggestions, please contact one of our Front of House Managers - details are below.

Food and drink

We have child friendly snacks and drinks available behind our bar. Please do feel comfortable to breast feed your child on our premises - if you would like privacy to do this then please make a member of our Front of House team aware.

We have a microwave available in our Green Room. Again, let a member of our Front of House team aware if you would like access to it.

Baby changing

Our accessible toilet has baby changing facilities. The accessible toilet is located next to our auditorium.

Access

The Arena Theatre is on one level from our front entrance to the auditorium door, meaning access for buggies is no problem at all. You can leave your buggie either in the auditorium with a member of Front of House, or in our Box Office - ensuring all of your possessions are safe.

Tickets

If you are comfortable with a child on your lap, then they will not require a paid for ticket. However, we do limit this to children who are two and under.

Booster seats and ear defenders

We have booster seats available so your children will not miss any of the action on stage. Please let the Box Office know if you would like a booster seat.

We also have ear defenders available for children who are averse to loud noises, or for small babies. Again, let the Box Office know if you would like a pair.
