general information

Photography & Mobile Phones

Patrons are respectfully reminded that, unless specified otherwise, the use of mobile phones and photography is not permitted in the auditorium.


The Old Rep venue is a no smoking venue, this includes e-cigarettes and vaping.


For your safety and security, bag checks are now in operation. Please allow extra time for this. We ask that, where possible, you avoid bringing oversized bags as these cannot be taken into the auditorium.


Coats and other items can be left in our cloakroom at Box Office at a cost of £1 per item. There is limited space so please refrain from bringing large items. Any large or unusual items may be checked before we agree to store them.


CCTV is in operation around the theatre for your own safety and security.

Eating & Drinking

Soft, alcoholic and hot drinks, and a range of snacks are available from our bars. There are small bars in the foyer and balcony areas with a limited selection, while our Hinckley Bar (accessed via Hinckley Street) stocks our full range of refreshments.

Unless otherwise informed, refreshments can be taken into the auditorium. Drinks must be decanted into plastic or paper cups.
