At present we do not have box office facilities for the sale of tickets. We can however sell online via www.ticketweb.co.uk. We are looking into the possibility of running a box office from the venue and will inform you of any changes as and when we can.
On the night of your event our cash desk is available for your staff to sell tickets or run the guest list from.
Facilities are available however any aftershow must be arranged in advance with venue. If the bands would like to stay in for the club night they are more than welcome and we will ensure adequate security is available.
Arrangements can also be made at the Cathouse and Tunnel clubs if required.
Just before doors to the event, there will be a show stop meeting with venue manager, head of security, promoter’s rep and band rep (tour manager). This meeting is in case there is an emergency that calls for the show to be stopped, that everyone involved knows the correct procedures as to carry this out quickly and safely.
