Burnley Mechanics welcomes patrons of all ages

Patrons who wish to visit the Mechanics with children, we request that you follow specific guidelines which are designed to ensure that everyone visiting the theatre will have an enjoyable experience.

Our policy is to welcome children* over the age of 2 years where suitable to attend.

Burnley Mechanics does not admit babes in arms to theatre productions unless specifically stated otherwise. If you are planning on bringing very young children please check at the time of booking so that our staff can advise you whether the show is suitable depending on their age.   We regularly advertise the age recommendation for shows as a guideline only, thus allowing parents to decide whether or not a performance may be suitable for their child. However it is the parent’s decision and the venue cannot be held responsible if a parent decides after the fact that a show was not suitable for their particular child.   If parents are concerned about the content of a show, they are advised to call the box office or check the website.

Parents should be aware that some of our productions may contain, for example, loud music, loud bangs or pyrotechnics . Please note that patrons are not allowed to consume alcohol in the auditorium where shows are specified as Family Shows.

Every individual attending a performance must have a ticket, regardless of age, so that the theatre is not in breach of fire and licensing regulations.

All children under 14 attending a performance must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

We welcome children and young people into our non theatre areas but we ask accompanying adults to monitor their behavior so that they respect both the space and the fact that it is used by other patrons.

If a child or person is found to be disruptive for any reason and this disruption impacts on the enjoyment of the show for patrons or cast members we reserve the right to ask the parent, carer, child or person to leave the theatre.   Should this occur we have made provision in the Colin Sanderson Theatre Bar for patrons to watch the show on projector screens without disrupting members of the audience in the theatre.

Refunds for missed performances will not be given.

Please consult a member of our Box Office or Front of House if you have any queries regarding this information.

*Constitutes children aged 2 to 16 years.
