As Minors benefit from the concession ticket price, proof of age must be provided when collecting their event badge. Minors must also present themselves at the registration desk with their accompanying responsible adult.

Any infringements by the Minors will be attributed to their accompanying adult. In the unlikely event of the accompanying adult being ejected from the event, the minor will also be required to leave.

The event may features adult themes and language. Accompanying adults are expected to use their own judgement to determine if the content is suitable for their Minor and remove them from the auditorium if they feel the content is unsuitable.

The welfare of any Minor remains the responsibilty of their accompanying adult at all times.
