As posted in our venue...

 If you’ve had your personal space invaded, been touched inappropriately, feel unsafe or uncomfortable
because of another patron, come to the bar and ask for the House Manager.

 Your safety and happiness is our highest priority.

 If anyone is bothering you or making you feel uncomfortable, please tell us.
We will discretely move them away, and if necessary ask them to leave.

 The West End Cultural Centre is a safe and fun space.
We want you to enjoy your time here.

 Talk to us and we’ll sort it out.
