Cabaret Voltaire House Rules As of 28/3/22 the guidelines laid out in this document will form part of the contract each event organiser has with the venue Cabaret Voltaire. These are subject to change by the General Manager.

1. Conduct within the venue When inside the venue you are a representative of us, and as such you must act responsibly and respectfully to customers, other members of staff and our equipment.

2. Cash desk staff If you have chosen to appoint your own cash desk staff, they must act as if a member of our bar staff. They are a face of our venue and cannot be seen to be drinking alcohol on shift or any other unprofessionalism.

3. Tech requirements A technical specification of what the venue has available will be provided, any items over and above this will be up to the event organiser to rent/buy themselves. Our in-house sound techs will set up and break down the venue’s equipment only. It will be up to the rental company or event organiser to set up/break down any additional equipment.

4. Use of equipment Any damage caused during a night of an event will result in that event organiser paying for its repair or replacement. Continual misuse of equipment (ie drink spillage) will result in that artists/band being banned from playing in the venue. We will provide a table for any drinks to be placed whilst the artist/band is playing

4.1 Turntable needles Where possible, DJs should provide their own needles for use on turntables. If this is not possible, the venue will have some available, but a deposit equal to the cost to replace the needle will be required. This will be returned providing the needle is returned to us in working order. Instances of breakage due to regular use/wear and tear will be assessed on a case by case basis by venue management and the sound techs.

5. Decorations Any decor or signage that is used for an event must be removed at the end of the night. Exceptions can be made but must be agreed with venue management ahead of time, and cannot interfere with the set up of any subsequent events.

6. Riders Event organisers may bring their own riders for bands/DJs, however this must be a reasonable amount of alcohol per person, and a list of how much of what product is being brought in must be sent to the general manager in advance to approve.

7. On stage/back of house access Only those who are performing or are part of the event management team may be allowed on the stage or in any back of house areas. We will provide wristbands which must be requested in advance to allow access to these areas. 8.
