Your safety and security is important to us and The Plaza has a series of visible and discreet security measures in place 24 hours a day.
All bags may be subject to security searches prior to entry to the building. As such, we would ask that you refrain from bringing large bags to the venue as this could cause delays to your admittance.
If you are attending a theatre or cinematic performance, please kindly ensure that you arrive with plenty of time for these security checks to take place, particularly so if you also have to collect tickets from the Box Office counter, which can be very busy prior to any event.
Our security measures are under constant review and we reserve the right to change arrangements at short notice.
