Your Safety

Your safety is our priority

The safety and security of our visitors, performers and staff is a top priority for us at Brighton Dome.

Like all public buildings and spaces, Brighton Dome has a number of security measures in place to help minimise the possibility of a terrorist attack in the venues. These measures include procedures should an attack actually happen.

As a matter of course, our visitor services team are in regular contact with counter terrorism Police who provide regular briefings to us and recommendations about how we can enhance our security across our venues. In addition, we work closely with them to ensure that we are fully prepared to deal with any potential incidents on site.

Ticket checks and bag checks

To make your visit as safe, secure and enjoyable as possible we carefully assess each event alongside the current security risk set by the government to decide what security measures need to be in place. These additional security measures may include bag checks, limitations on what can be taken into the auditorium and ticket checks on the outer gates of the venue.

Staff will be on hand to ensure these measures are carried out as quickly and easily as possible. If at all possible please do not bring large bags with you. Random bag searches will be in place and any bags which are larger than an A4 piece of paper will need to be searched and then checked into our bag drop. Please note that hand held metal detectors maybe in use. These checks will take additional time and may slow down entry to the venue so please allow extra time and do not bring bags if this can be avoided. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Regular reviews

We work hard to protect the safety and security of our visitors, performers and staff and where possible to mitigate against the likelihood of an attack. We will be continually reviewing the measures we have in place as appropriate and in line with relevant direction from the security services.

You can play a part in keeping yourselves and the rest of the audience safe by being vigilant to unusual behaviour or items and reporting any concerns you have to our Duty staff.
