• If you are a Proxy for one or more members, please inform the staff on the registration desk on arrival.
 
• A tea & coffee station will be situated outside the Studio Theatre where you will be able to get refreshments between the following three times on arrival: 9.15 to 9.45am morning break: 11.15 to 11.30am and afternoon break: 14.15 to 14.30pm – Please be aware that the refreshment station will be very busy and to help aid swift service your badge needs to be clearly visible. The café will also be open – it is located close to the Studio Theatre to the left when you leave the theatre.
 
• You are not permitted to consume food in the Studio Theatre, however you are allowed to take unfinished drinks with lids into the room.
 
• You will be able to buy some lunch at the Library Café if you wish which is on the ground floor. It serves a range of quality eat-in and takeaway food made from British ingredients, simply prepared and changing seasonally. Extra seating is available on the mezzanine level, overlooking Centenary Square. The Discovery Café on Floor 3 is also open during peak times, with a selection of freshly prepared deli sandwiches and hot and cold beverages. Please be aware that it will be very busy around lunchtime and there is only a 45 minute break between lunch and the start of the Awards Ceremony. Therefore we would advise you to bring along your own lunch if possible. Please note food may only be consumed in the Lounge areas on each floor. Vending machines for cold drinks and snacks are also available in the Lounge areas.
