Venue Security

On 16th November 2021, UK Terrorism Threat was increased to Severe which means we all need to increase our vigilance. 

At York Barbican, we implement many security measures to keep you safe, some of which you can see and some that are less visible during your visit. At select events, we will have detection dogs stationed around the venue. If you see them say hello but please remember they are working dogs.

York Barbican has and always will continue to review security measures in conjunction with authorities and emergency services. Further enhanced security checks have been put in place to provide reassurance and confidence and we advise you to arrive in plenty of time to pass through these additional security checks.
