Please note that After Hours is only for those aged 18 and over.

After Hours is a very popular event and entry is subject to a maximum capacity. Spaces for all special events are allocated on a first come, first served basis subject to availability, and popular events will sell out quickly, so please book tickets or arrive early to minimise the chance of disappointment. Some events may incur a small additional charge to attend.

A ‘Challenge 21’ policy is operated for admission and at the bar, so please bring ID with you if you are lucky enough to look under 21!
