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.

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.

M&S Bank Arena discourages people from bringing banners, posters and flags to any events. We may on occasion permit A4 sized posters, providing they do not contain any offensive content as deemed by M&S Bank Arena.  However, we reserve the right to confiscate these items should we, or fellow audience members, find them disruptive to the enjoyment of the event. 

For health and safety reasons banners, posters and flags with poles or strengthening enhancements will be confiscated.  If you are unsure whether your banner or flag will be acceptable then please do not bring it to the venue.

M&S Bank Arena can take no responsibility for any loss or damage to property of this nature brought on-site and strongly recommends customers familiarise themselves with Ticket Conditions of Sale displayed on the reverse of all tickets before attending an event.
