Weapons will be checked by our security. They decide on wether or not the weapon is permitted. In case a weapon is not permitted, it has to be left at the weapons check and picked up when you leave. In case of weapons that the security is not allowed to take (guns, pyrotechnics, etc) the visitor has to be expelled from the location. If the person is not permitted to carry these items, a report will be filed with the police. Even if they have a permit, the person can be expelled if they threaten other people or do not act accordingly.
Weapons for stage performances
In case a weapon is not permitted, but is required for a stage performance, it is possible to use it after the security agrees, but only for the certain time window on stage, while accompanied by a security.
