Coming to an event - frequently asked questions
Interested in attending a UEA event? Many of our events are free and do not require registration. Others will have a cost, or require advance booking. Check our event listings in advance to make sure you've done everything you need to before attending an event.
If you have any accessibility or other requirements, please contact us on email@example.com before attending an event so that we can help make arrangements so that you have a positive event experience.
Norwich Box Office operate a waiting list for returned tickets. If this is full, you might want to try posting a request on The Official LCR Ticket Exchange Facebook page to see if anyone has a spare ticket.
Some larger events, such as UEA Live, operate an overspill when they sell out, to allow additional visitors to view the event via video link. See individual event listings for details to find out whether this is an option at your event.
For paid events, you are guaranteed entry on production of a valid ticket. We cannot guarantee places at unpaid events for which registration is not required, however, due to the nature of these events it is unlikely that they will fill up.
The majority of UEA events are open to all. As a general rule, you will need to be 14 years old or over to attend a gig at The Nick Rayns LCR or Adrian Flux Waterfront, and over 18 years old to attend a club night.
Some film screenings hosted by UEA will be age restricted, dependant on the film’s official rating.
Photo ID will be checked on entry if there is any doubt as to whether you are old enough to attend an event.
No food or drink, with the exception of water, should be taken into UEA seminar rooms or lecture theatres.
Should you wish to take photographs at a UEA gig or club night, you will need a valid press pass. For further information please contact email the Norwich Box Office.
You are welcome to take photos at other UEA events but please do not use flash photography during talks or lectures, as it may distract our speakers or other members of the audience. Don’t forget to tag @UEAEvents in your posts if you upload your pictures to social media!
There are a number of different food outlets across campus, offering a wide range of drinks and meals. Shop at UEA also sells a variety of sandwiches and snacks. Opening hours of shops and outlets on campus vary depending on time of year.
The Union Bar is open to those attending events on campus. Please make sure you explain to staff on the door that you are on campus for an event. If you are a UEA alumnus, you will be able to enter the bar by showing your Alumni Benefit Card. To obtain a card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of our public lectures are followed by drinks receptions, giving you a chance to mingle with other guests and talk with the speaker.
