Age Guidance

The Civic Theatre hosts a wide range of events, some of which might not be suitable for everyone. This could include bad language, scenes of an adult nature or violence. All of our events come with an Age Guidance rating on our web pages and online.

If you are unsure at the time of booking, please contact one of our Box Office Team who will be able to advise you further.

When a performance is suitable for all and young children might be attending, we have a limited number of booster seats available but if your child has a car seat feel free to bring it in. You will also need to purchase a Babe in Arms Ticket from the Box Office on the night.
