Families

The Albany Theatre warmly welcomes patrons of all ages

The Albany Theatre has a long history of welcoming children to the theatre, whether they are performing on stage, or visiting a theatre for the first time as a patron. Please read through the information below if you are visiting as a family, in order to have a pleasant and enjoyable time.

We are always looking to develop our services; please get in touch if you think anything can be improved for your next visit.

Forthcoming Events

We have a continuing programme suitable for all ages, for the most recent and up to date list, please see our What’s On page.

Every single one of our events comes with a specific Age Guidance Rating, found on the event page. This rating is discussed in collaboration with the visiting company, and should be used as a guideline for parents. 

If an event is suitable for all, Lap Tickets will be available through the Box Office only for very young patrons (1-3 years). Everyone entering the auditorium must have a valid ticket, including babe-in-arms (under 12 months – free tickets are available from the Box Office).

We ask that children under the age of 13 are accompanied by an adult at all times.

If you are unsure if an event may be suitable for your child, please contact the Box Office.

Facilities

Booster Seats

We know that very small children may have difficulty seeing the action on stage, especially if they are sitting in the very front three or four rows. There are a limited number of booster seats available inside the auditorium. These are first-come first-served once the house is open. Please ask the Ushers for more information. If your child has a car booster seat feel free to bring it in.

General Guidance

The Albany Theatre auditorium is built to amplify sound from the stage. Please be aware that noises from the stalls can be disturbing to other patrons. If you notice that your child is becoming unsettled, please make your way into the foyer.
