Children and infants
HOME wants to make all our customers feel welcome and we really hope that our younger visitors become regulars at our theatre and cinema.

In the cinema
Our Parent and Baby Screenings take place on the third Thursday of each month. Only parents, grandparents and carers attending with a baby aged 12 months and under, will be admitted into these screenings. Screenings are priced at our regular matinee ticket prices, with no charge for your baby.

If your child is aged over 12 months or if you’d like to bring older children to the cinema, we recommend bringing them along to our monthly Bring the Family screenings. All children must be accompanied by an adult at these screenings.

During our Parent and Baby and Bring the Family screenings, adjustments are made to the cinema environment to make it more comfortable and convenient for you and your baby. The sound will be at a lower volume and the lights in the cinema will be kept on throughout the screening at a dimmed level.

Children aged 3+ may attend screenings certified as U, PG or 12A. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately, we are unable to admit children aged under 3 to other screenings and all our screenings are subject to BBFC age certificates. Please be mindful of the fact that not all these screenings are aimed at children, even if the BBFC age certificate is appropriate. If your child becomes very vocal or distressed we may ask you to take them out of the cinema until they settle.

In the theatre
In consideration of our audience and performers, no children under 3 years of age are admitted to our theatre shows unless the production is specifically aimed at the very young.

Our Box Office team will be happy to advise you about upcoming shows suitable for younger audiences, and you can also find information about the content and age recommendations for individual productions on our website.
