  • Is there a Cloakroom on at the venue?
    There is a cloakroom area downstairs below the changing room area and will be clearly signposted.  In addition, both changing rooms are very large and suitable for storing a large number of coats and bags.  The cloakroom and changing rooms are NOT SECURE... repeat NOT SECURE, which means you leave your belongings at your own risk so we recommend NOT leaving any valuables here.
    Bags and coats cannot be left around the venue as they represent a FIRE RISK. Any bags obstructing free passage around the venue, or piles of coats/and or clothes that may constitute a fire risk, will be removed and placed in a lost property section in the cloakrooms provided. It is possible to take your bags out of the Cloakrooms at any time which allows dancers to change before and after a competition heat. We request that everybody entering the venue leave their large bags and belongings in the cloakroom/changing rooms. We would appreciate your co-operation in this matter.

  • Is there a Changing Room?
    Male and female changing rooms are available. The location of these changing rooms will be indicated with signs on the day and stewards will be available to assist in locating the rooms. There will be mirrors, hanging rails and hangers so that costumes may be hung up and bags left for ease of access for competitors. These changing rooms are NOT SECURE... repeat NOT SECURE, which means you leave your belongings at your own risk so we recommend NOT leaving any valuables.
