Usually, there is no age limit on who can come to events taking place at the Arena. However if unsure, please check with the box office before booking as some events may be deemed unsuitable for Children below a certain age. Often it is left to the discretion of the parent or guardian and you can download The National Arenas Association information to help you ensure that your visit to the Arena is an enjoyable one for both you and your children. Some events at the Arena have a standing area on the floor and this area may not be suitable for children aged 14 & under and therefore we recommend that tickets should be purchased in a seated area of the Arena.

Venue queuing policy
On the day a show goes on sale we allow customers to queue up to purchase tickets in person from the Arena Box Office, but only on the day that the show goes on sale.
People queuing before this will be asked to return on the day that the show goes on sale. We will exercise our right not to serve anyone who refuses to comply with this policy.
This policy was introduced following incidents that have happened whilst customers queued outside the Arena to buy tickets. We owe a duty of care to anyone who decides to queue on our land and it was clear after investigations that we were not in a position to fulfil this obligation for customers who were often queuing for several days and some cases weeks at a time.
We were unable to provide staff to monitor the queue and ensure safety; the area isn't suitable for people camping out exposed to the elements; we often have events in the Arena that require clear entrance / exit through the area where the queues have formed; we have no services available such as toilet and wash facilities.
We are fully aware that for some fans queuing to buy tickets is part of the fan experience. We are not trying to prevent this, but simply place manageable parameters to enable customers to be able to purchase tickets safely.
