Babes In Arms Policy

Under 2s will be admitted to children's shows but parents must obtain a special ticket from the Box Office.

For all other shows, we kindly request patrons contact the Box Office in advance to ascertain whether a performance is deemed to be suitable for young babies. If considered to be the case, a ticket will be issued with the understanding that parents sit near an aisle and be prepared to leave the auditorium if their baby becomes unsettled. The Traverse Theatre is a family friendly venue and we are happy to assist parents wherever possible, but must also consider our other patrons' enjoyment of the theatre, and ensure they are not disrupted during performances.

Please note: Babes in Arms tickets are free of charge and will permit under 2s to sit on the lap of a parent, with the exception of children's shows aimed specifically at babies under 2, for which there may be a ticket charge. If a parent wishes to have a separate seat for their baby they must purchase a ticket accordingly.


The Traverse box office is unable to store items of luggage. If you have items you wish to leave, we advise using the Left Luggage facility at Waverley Station.

No large or oversized bags can be taken into the theatres or stored in the building at any time.
