Full searches, including search dogs, will be in operation at all entrances throughout the night.

Can I leave and come back in again later?

Unfortunately not. As with all events at Manchester Arena we have a strict no pass out / no re-entry policy.

What about smoking?

Our city-centre location, next to the inner ring road, does not offer a safe place for a designated smoking area for the visiting general public due to the potentially large numbers involved.  Therefore, for health and safety reasons, there will not be an opportunity for the general public to leave and re-enter the venue. Please also note, the use of electronic cigarettes is not permitted inside the venue.

What time will you be serving food and drink until?

Food and drink will be available all night, with breakfast items on sale from selected outlets in the morning. Alcohol will be served until 4am (subject to change).
