  1. My son bought 2 tickets for this (Death Grips, 31/8/2018). He is 15. He bought the 2nd ticket for a 17 year old friend because your website says:

    “14+ Show, Under 16 Must Be Accompanied”

    Given how vague this statement is I think it was fair enough for him to assume that anyone 16 or over could be the accompanier. However, being one to never trust the idiotic way information is often presented on websites, and not wanting him to get turned away at the door, I called Barrowlands. I was told it must be a parent or guardian. Some ages were bandied about. I seem to remember 25 being mentioned. Anyway, the upshot of the conversation with the lady on the phone is that he can’t go with his friend. I will have to go.

    So, I would like you to do ONE of the following:
    a. Confirm that a 15 year old CAN go with a 17 year old friend
    b. Clarify the information in your website!

    Thank-you for your attention.

    1. I am sorry for the misunderstanding, we have had the same information on the site for 20 years and never had any confusion though we are always open to removing doubt so I have changed all 14+ future listings to “Accompanied by an Adult, (18+)”. I would suggest that anyone in doubt about any aspects of the venue, should contact the venue prior to purchase.

      Please note in this instance, the ticket site link also expressly says: “Choose Tickets – 14+ only. 14s to 16s must be accompanied by an adult. No refunds will be given for incorrectly booked tickets”, so it is not the venue or promoter’s fault if your Son does not read the purchase details, prior to purchase.

      To be clear the legal age for an adult in the UK is 18 so 17 is not an adult, and as with any minor, that 18 year old has to have the express permission of the guardian to be in charge of the minor.

      It is up to you if wish to accompany him or find another “adult” who is willing to take responsibility for him on the night, with your permission. In this instance if needed, you contact me via-email admin@barrowland-ballroom.co.uk I will arrange a free pass for you as the adult.

    2. If your son and his friend need accompanied by someone 18+ I’ll get him through the door and he can go off on his own. I reckon he’ll be fine though.
