Security and Bag Policy

What security measures are in place?

We have a range of security measures in place, some of which are visible and some of which aren’t.

Searching is a condition of entry to protect your safety and that of other visitors. Everyone arriving at the venue will enter through our upgraded intelligent security screening system. Don't worry, the system is safe for everyone – even if you have a pacemaker or are pregnant.

It’s very easy to prepare for the screening:

  • Finish up any food and drink before you enter venue itself as you’re not allowed to take these in with you.
  • Keep your bags and coats on your person, there is no need to take items from your pockets, unless instructed to by our security team.
  • Simply pass through the screening system when asked by one of the team.
  • You may be required to undergo a further search; you’ll be instructed to head to the nearest search point if required.
  • Have your tickets ready for scanning.

Regular security patrols take place in and around the venue and our staff are trained to spot and report suspicious behaviour. We work closely with the West Midland's Police and Project Servator to ensure our training and procedures are up to date.


Bag Policy

Only one bag is allowed per person. All persons and bags will be subject to search on entry. Please consider whether you need to bring a bag.
