In the light of the tragic event that took place at the Manchester Arena and in London, we are revising the venues security and emergency procedures. Our current security operation considers information provided to us by Police Scotland and is scaled appropriately to each event after discussions with the organisers. Whilst the national threat level in the UK remains at a critical, we have decided to enhance our normal operating procedures as follows;
- Bags may be randomly searched when coming into the venue
- Patrons maybe required to go through additional security procedures at the discretion of the venue and organiser
Whilst there is no intelligence to suggest a specific threat to Scotland, we feel that these are appropriate measures and ask you to support them and our staff.
All events are scheduled to continue at this time and we will continue to provide updates on our security measures through our website and social media channels.
We look forward to welcoming you to our venue.
