Since the 1st of January 2005 the Motorpoint Arena has requested that customers do not smoke inside the building to promote the comfort and safety of all patrons.
Since the 1st July 2007 it is the law that nobody will be able to smoke inside the building.
From the 12 April 2012 the building will be operating a pass out system for those customers who wish to smoke at Arena events. Anyone wishing to use the smoking area must contact a steward who will be able to inform them of the procedures and the location of the smoking area. Please be aware that depending upon the event this location along with the procedure may change and you should always ensure you are scanned out of the building by a steward - anyone leaving the building of their own volition will not be able to regain access to the building.
The Arena would request that all patrons visiting the premises comply with venue policy, as failure to do so may result in ejection with no readmission.
