A free cloakroom service for bags and coats is available immediately prior to performances

Our main cloakroom on the Stalls floor (Level -1) is open from 90 minutes before an event and until 30 mins after the event on performance days. Opening hours can vary depending on our event programme. Alternative cloakroom facilities are also available outside the Art Gallery on Level 3 during exhibition hours.

Please donate a voluntary £2 contribution via cash or contactless when using our cloakrooms in order to support our charitable activities.

The comfort and safety of our audiences and staff is always paramount. As part of our security measures, we have reinforced our restrictions on bags inside our venues. Only one, reasonably-sized, handbag per person may be taken inside our auditoria and all bags may be searched. You may find it easier to avoid bringing bags no larger than 32(w) x 18(l) x 22cm(h) on your next visit. Larger bags may be stored in the cloakroom. 

All bags are subject to search when entering our galleries. Small backpacks are to be worn on the front.
