  • NHS COVID-19 app to your phone to keep this check-in process as quick as possible.
  • Once everyone in your group has been checked in you will be shown to your specific seats by a staff member, following a one-way system. Unfortunately due to the current restrictions you will not be able to choose where you sit, or be able to sit with people from other groups.
  • The Ignition Room has level access from Upper Street.

  • Staff can direct you to the nearest publicly accessible toilets before you enter the venue.
