General FAQ

Can I book tickets for the Beats Working sessions and live performances?

All sessions and performances work on a first-come first-served basis. There is no extra ticket required to watch performances but some will get busy fast, so find out who you need to see and make sure you’re queueing early! Certain areas of the show like access to the VIP lounge will need the purchase of a VIP ticket.

How is the show structured? Can I leave to go outside to get a coffee? Will I be able to come back into the event if I leave?

Yes. There are many food and drink vendors in the venue, and we offer a wide variety of refreshments within the hall space, but certainly feel free to leave the show for a snack or lunch if you so choose. Surrounding the venue are shopping centres, cafes, bars and hotels, just make sure you don’t take off your barcoded wrist band as that is your passport to get in and out of the event. You can bring your own refreshments into the show, but please note that you cannot bring in any alcohol.

Will I still have to queue to enter the show even though I’ve purchased my tickets online in advance?

If you have purchased advance tickets to the show, you will not have to queue at the box office to purchase tickets but you may have to join the entrance queue… Don’t worry we will try our hardest to get you in as soon as possible.

As we cannot guarantee that there will be door ticket available on the day of the event, keep refreshing this website closer to the show to check availability.

All visitors, including those in wheelchairs and those with special needs, will find the event to be a fun, enriching and educational experience albeit please be aware that the show is very busy and you should consider there will be queuing in the show and large crowds in the show.

For everyone’s safety, children and youths under the age of 16 must be supervised by an accompanying adult at all times during their visit.

If there are tickets available (keep checking the box office site) we do accept credit cards at the door, but only for the standard weekend tickets. VIP weekend tickets must be purchased in advance.

Are there crèche facilities?

Sorry, there are no crèche facilties on site.

My child is on the Autism Spectrum. What can you tell us about the queues and crowds at your event?

The Grand Slam is a big show. We are expecting many drum fans to come to the event each day, so crowds and queues are going to be inevitable. We would recommend not turning up until well after the main doors have opened. There will be long queues of people who want to get in as fast as they can and have turned up early. Once the initial queue of people has entered the event, entrance will be much smoother.

We’re afraid that we are not able to make specific provision within the show for children on the autism spectrum and there will not be specific areas for calming. It is just not feasible for us to do this, given the size of the venue and number of guests.
