Standing and Queueing

If possible, we will let in immediately people who have difficulty with standing and queuing. If we are not able to let people in to the venue then we can hold a place in the queue and/or provide seating if we are able.
All of our concert venues are seated, stewards can assist finding suitable seats and/or wheelchair spaces.
