SECURITY.

Our bag size policy and other security procedures to keep you safe

We have a permanent uniformed security presence on site and work closely with the police and government agencies.

BAG SIZE POLICY

We limit the size of bags that can be brought on to the site. The maximum bag size is 40cm x 35cm x 19cm. We are not able to admit oversized bags.

Storing bags

Our cloakroom is currently closed, so you will need to store any large bags offsite if you are attending a performance, tour or event.

If you need details of nearby bag-drop facilities, please refer to Stasher, BagBnB or Luggage Hero, being aware that they may have a reduced operation at this time.

Exceptions

Bags containing necessary medical equipment, or buggies and equipment for use in childcare, will be permitted, subject to the owners agreeing that these items may need to be inspected.

Our procedures

All Globe staff partake in security training and will remain vigilant to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable visit. As part of our ongoing liaison with the Metropolitan Police there is also a police presence in support of our reassurance operations.

Please note that our security procedures are kept under constant review and therefore the above information may change.
