Under 2's will be admitted free of charge to children's shows, but parents must obtain a special ticket from the Box Office on arrival at the theatre.
For all other shows we kindly request patrons contact the Box Office in advance to ascertain whether a performance is deemed to be suitable for young babies by the Management of the Octagon Theatre. If considered to be the case, a ticket will be issued free of charge with the understanding that parents sit near an aisle and be prepared to remove themselves from the auditorium if their baby becomes unsettled. The Octagon Theatre is a family friendly venue and we are happy to assist parents wherever possible, but must also consider our other patrons enjoyment of the theatre and ensure they are not disrupted during performances.
Babes in Arms tickets for all performances permit under 2's to sit on the lap of a parent. If a parent wishes to have a separate seat for their baby they must purchase a ticket accordingly.
