FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Got questions? We’ve got the answers.
We’re really proud of our work and happy to share the ‘what’s and ‘why’s of all that we do. Have a read below for answers to questions we get asked the most. If your question isn’t answered then please get in touch.
No! We, like many of you, are doing our best to limit our environmental impact so there is no need to print your tickets before the gig, just bring your email confirmation with you.
Loud In Libraries C.I.C. operates a no alcohol policy within our venues.
Our gigs are for people of all-ages because we believe that live music should not exclude those under the legal drinking age. This policy also helps to prevent anti-social behaviour and creates a safer gig environment for everyone.
That being said, on entering the venue you will receive a hand stamp so that, if audience members do choose to exit the venue for a drink at a local pub or bar, they can be re-admitted on return.
Any audience member demonstrating signs of drunken or anti-social behaviour will not be allowed re-entry.
Under 10’s accompanying an adult go free! Please buy a ticket for children over this age.
All children are welcome to Loud in Libraries live shows and ear plugs and ear defenders are provided for very young children and babies where requested. Please note Loud in Libraries CIC shows can get VERY LOUD and are programmed within intimate venues so do bring your own ear defenders if you wish to doubly ensure your children’s hearing isn’t adversely affected as pairs of ear defenders within the venue can run out if the event is particularly popular.
All our library venues are fully accessible and have wheelchair access. If you are a wheelchair user wishing to seek an optimum and comfortable viewing space at a Loud In Libraries CIC show, please contact staff before the show and they will allow you priority access 10 minutes before official doors time.
If you have a specific accessibility need, please contact us ahead of the show so that we are able to make you experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Nominated carers responsible for, or accompanying ticket carrying gig goers (e.g. wheelchair users) do not have to purchase a ticket for Loud In Libraries C.I.C. shows.
Our gigs are standing only, however if you need to sit down for medical reasons, please ask a member of staff at the venue and they will be happy to assist you.
Stage times are subject to change, however support artists are expected to begin 15 minutes after doors open, and the main act begins an hour after doors open. If stage times alter you will be notified at the venue.
You are welcome to breastfeed at GILIL shows. Please speak to a staff member at the venue and they will locate a more private, quiet place for you.
