DIAMOND MINECART VIP MEET & GREET £85.00 (£85.00) Transaction fee applicable * Sold out
DanTDM VIP Meet and Greet includes: - A meet with Dan - Chance to take a photo with Dan - Other exclusive goodies All children must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the DanTDM VIP Meet and Greet sessions. Any accompanying adult must also hold a valid ticket for the same performance, although the accompanying adult does not need to purchase their own VIP upgrade (although if you haven't purchased the upgrade, you won't get any of the other benefits, obviously). Very Important - any children in a group who do not have a DanTDM VIP Meet and Greet ticket valid for that performance will not be able to attend the Diamond Minecart session, so please make sure that an extra guardian is on site to look after any children who are not in possession of a VIP ticket. Space will be limited so only one accompanying adult will be able to join in. The upgrade package is only available at the time of ticket purchase; it cannot be purchased later. Precise details of the meet and greet session, including timings, will be emailed to purchasers closer to the date of their performance, around two weeks before the date, by the venue you booked the ticket at so please make sure that the venue is in your address book so these emails don't go to spam. It is expected that meet and greet sessions will take place before the performance, so you will need to allow extra time to reach the venue; it will not be possible to reschedule to a later time or date if you are late.

Under 14 must be accompanied and no under 14s go on the floor for standing floor shows.

Children shows allow babes in arms up to 23 months however some shows specifically targeted at younger audiences require a ticket for anyone attending the performance. Please check the relevant show's event page for further details.

Further enhanced security checks have been put in place at Manchester Arena to provide reassurance and confidence and we advise you to arrive in plenty of time to pass through these additional security checks.

We also ask that you keep personal belongings to a minimum and only bring your essentials with you. Please do not bring any backpacks or large bags as these will not be permitted into the arena. You are permitted to bring small bags or handbags no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm (approx. an A3 piece of paper).

There are no storage facilities for large items within the venue and it will be left to the patron to find a safe temporary facility to hold them. The venue will not be responsible for late admission or non-admission as a result of this policy.

If you are collecting tickets on the day a temporary box office has been set up on the Trinity Way corridor next to the Arena car park entrance. This temporary box office will be open from 4.00pm only on a show day and will close approximately 15 minutes after the main act goes on stage.
