CHAPEL NIGHTCLUB POLICY PAGE


DRESS CODE
Admission to the Chapel Nightclub and Vestry Bar is subject to a dress code. Unless otherwise specified for an event our dress code is `Smart Casual" so think in terms of "No effort = No entry" and you will not go far wrong.

Exceptions are made for genuine themes/fancy dress but "clean, tidy and decent" still apply.

ADMISSION, REFUSALS & EJECTIONS
In accordance with licensing law the venue has the right to refuse admission without providing a reason. If you have consumed alcohol prior to arrival & appear to be in an intoxicated state or behave inappropriately in the queue or in view of the venue staff you may be refused entry without a refund.
Crowd surfing and the throwing of drinks are strictly prohibited in the venue and those who do this will be ejected without a refund. In line with licensing law the venue has the right to refuse admission to any patron without providing a reason.

CAMERAS & RECORDING EQUIPMENT
No professional cameras (with large or detachable lenses). Should you be found to have these on arrival you will be asked to either take them back to somewhere safe or be asked to deposit them in the cloakroom.
Small compact cameras are allowed unless specified on the day of the show.
For the satisfaction of other customer’s iPads and/or tablet devices are not permitted to photograph or film during any performances. Customers who persist may be asked to leave the venue.

DISABLED ACCESS
We are keen to promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities and where possible have taken the necessary steps to meet customer’s requirements. Both The Chapel Nightclub and The Vestry Bar are accessible and wheelchair friendly, however we do not have any parking or viewing platforms as yet. There is also an easily accessible disabled toilet on site.
We do offer one free carers pass per ticket holder, this can be booked directly with the venue. Carer ticket holders should be able to meet the needs and assist the person they are accompanying in the event of an emergency.

FOOD & BEVERAGES
No food or beverages should be brought into The Chapel Nightclub or The Vestry Bar; these will be removed on search and confiscated. This includes sweets & chewing gum. Should you require any items for medical reasons please make this known to the security personnel on the front door who will contact the duty manager & medical personnel to discuss this in private.
