What should I bring with me? Patrons are advised to bring the least amount of belongings possible. Small bags are permitted but may be subject to searches and, at some events, may be removed from standing floor ticket-holders for collection afterwards. The unauthorised use of cameras, video or any other form of recording equipment is strictly prohibited. 35mm cameras are permitted at most events but professional cameras with a detachable zoom lens are not. At certain events, the promoter may request a ban on all photography and signs to this effect will be displayed at all entrances. No food or drink is to be brought into the venue. Banners are also prohibited.
What can I buy when I'm at the Arena? The Arena has a large and varied number of refreshment standards, offering a variety of hot and cold food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages. Official merchandise is also usually available inside the venue and occasionally in the City Room. Patrons are advised not to buy merchandise from vendors outside the M.E.N. Arena as these are not licensed suppliers and the quality of products cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that Upper Tier seats are very steep and are not advised for the elderly, infirm or those with an aversion to heights. If any of these apply, please do not purchase seats in the Upper Tier as relocation on the night is not possible.
