The Brook is an eighteen plus venue, although children of fourteen and upwards can come to shows if accompanied by an adult over the age of twenty one.
No more than two fourteen plus per adult.
Sometimes we do shows where our age policy is different. It will be stated on the listing of the show. i.e. Sometimes we do 14+, 16+ or 11-17 – Un-accompanied shows.
Please note that on the advice of Southampton Police – we only accept Passports or Photo Driving Licences as acceptable proof of age to buy alcohol. We do NOT accept any other form of age identification. We do NOT accept any national proof of age scheme cards. If you are lucky enough to look young – you will need I.D. If you are not sure – phone us before purchasing your tickets.
Under 16\'s MUST be off the premises by 12 Midnight.
If you are bringing under 18\'s with you, we accept any form of I.D. for them.
Under 18\'s will not be admitted to Comedy Nights (unless age is stated on the show), as we feel the content provided by some of the comedians is not suitable for minors.
Parking…There is plenty of street parking on Portswood Road and in the Industrial Estate behind us. We have a good relationship with our neighbours, and the People who run the industrial units behind us do not mind our customers using their car parks in the evenings. Despite this – the road is used by large lorries 24hours. Don’t park on the corners, don’t block gates. Or we may have an irate lorry driver interrupting the show – reading out your number plate!
Do not leave your car overnight in anyones car park. They may clamp it or remove it. If you are planning to leave your car overnight, leave it in normal street parking (watch out for permit parking) or ask the doorstaff if you are not sure!! Clarke Lane’s car park (the rough gravel one) is available, they clamp cars between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm, so you can park there during a show – but don’t leave your car!
We have a wheelchair-friendly front door and a disabled toilet downstairs. We are regularly visited by wheelchair users.
