Small sized bags can be taken into the theatre and placed either on your lap or stowed away underneath your chair. Large bags will not be allowed in the theatre as these pose risks to the safety of all patrons when entering and exiting the theatre. In addition walking aids such as walkers will be removed from the theatre during the show and returned to you at the conclusion of the performance. An usher will assist you should you require it.
