Following the latest government update on January 19, England will be reverting to Plan A regarding covid measures from January 27.

Whilst there will be no legal restrictions or requirements for Covid secure measures at events from this date, we will be ensuring that we continue to provide a safe environment for all.

We are still asking all visitors to follow the covid certification options ahead of attending all events. Free at home Lateral Flow Tests are available via the NHS here.

We ask all customers (aged 12 and over and unless medically exempt) to be prepared to show proof of one of the following:

Please note you only need to show one form of proof not both.

  • A valid NHS Covid pass via the NHS App or an NHS COVID Pass letter (available by phoning 119 and selecting “NHS COVID Pass Service”
  • Text or Email proof of a negative lateral flow or PCR test result (within the last 48 hours)
  • Proof that you have been double vaccinated and at least 14 days have passed since the date of your last vaccination by presenting a Covid Vaccination Card or any overseas proof of vaccination status
  • Text or email proof that you have previously had Covid within 180 days of arrival for the event  (and after the 10-day self-isolation period following the result) 

For the safety of all, please note that spot checks may be made and failure to comply with these requirements may result in refusal of entry.

M&S Bank Arena has three key points of entry, the Cityside main entrances, Riverside main entrances and Floor entrances. Please refer to your ticket for the recommended point of entry. It should also be noted that queue placement may not be determined until shortly before doors open. We therefore cannot guarantee accuracy in queue allocation prior to doors opening. For The Auditorium Liverpool events, customers should enter the building on the Cityside via the ACC Liverpool Galleria.

Please have your printed or e-tickets ready to speed up entry

If you opted for E-Tickets please ensure you have your bar coded PDF E-Ticket ready to show. Your E-Ticket will be attached to your booking confirmation email sent from  You can print your E-Tickets at home in advance or show them on your mobile device.  

Please be aware connectivity can be slow at the venue with large crowds so please have these ready to show prior to queueing.


The opening time for each event will be printed on your ticket and will be included in your pre-event email. We advise customers to arrive as close to the time of opening as they can, to ensure that everyone is seated on time and the show can begin with minimum disruption for others. Unfortunately, we cannot delay the performance time should customers arrive late.  Latecomers will only be admitted into the venue during a suitable break in the performance and/or at the discretion of the management. 

Please note that published event start and end times are approximate only and subject to change

Audience members are advised to arrive as close to event door opening times as possible. At no time will M&S Bank Arena Liverpool allow ‘camping’ on the private land around the venue. Individuals or groups who attempt to ‘camp’ will be asked to vacate the site until a suitable time.

For the safety and security of all, and to minimise queuing times, we ask that customers do not bring bags in to the arena.

If a bag is absolutely necessary and for essential items only, we will allow customers to bring one small bag no larger than A4, ideally this would be a clear bag to allow for quick and hygienic security searches.

Exemptions are allowed for medical purposes or for customers bringing changing bags for babies and young children

Please note we do not have left luggage facilities on site and cannot assist in storage of these bags.
