Our shows and events are obviously labelled/billed as an 18+ Cert,.
We trust that having chosen to come along and see such a show as this, our general adult audience has a broad and inquisitive mind ... if not, our show/event is perhaps not for you.

This event will include flashing lights and loud noise - if you have an aversion to either, we suggest that this event is probably not suitable for you.
