It’s always best to check the age restrictions for each event in advance as they vary from show to show.
A few obvious ones:
8-13 years, you’ll need to attend with an adult (18+)
Some shows that are 14+ but -16 – we’ll translate – that means if you’re between 14 years and 16 years, you’ll need to come with an adult (someone 18+).
Look for these signs, 14+, 16+, 18+, 21+… before you book and remember to carry proof of age if you need it. Find out what we accept and more in our FAQs.
