What to Bring
PLEASE remember to bring your printed ticket or a digital copy stored on your phone in addition to your photo ID. If you have a Citizen Card or any Star Citizen clothing, bring it!
There is a bar at the venue for drinks, and a small cafe for snacks, but attendees are encouraged to eat meals prior to the show.
Each year, fans have kindly offered gifts for the team. Unfortunately, since many of us are flying back to the United States the next day we are unable to accept anything at the event. We truly appreciate the thought, though!

Wheelchairs should be pre-registered with the Gloria Theatre via email to ensure suitable entry is available for the event. The hall is located on the ground floor of the theatre.

Backers will have the option to store their belongings in the visitor’s cloakroom. Coats, jackets and umbrellas should not be hung in the auditorium on the chairs or placed under the chairs and tables due to fire regulations.
