NO PICTURE ID ? …
OK .. SECURITY WILL SNAP A PICTURE OF YOU TO THE SYSTEM :
It is a licensing requirement to show a photo ID at the entrance.
But you are at an LGBT friendly venue with very cool security and management who understand your ID may not match your presentation. They will happily snap a picture of you on to the system so if you are “naughty” we can identify you next time.
Suitable ID is a driving licence, a passport or a ‘My ID Card PASS’ card …
(My ID Card is the official, PASS-accredited photo ID card accepted by most clubs across the UK as well as in cinemas, bars, restaurants and shops selling age-restricted goods and services. It’s easy to apply for and it only costs £15.)
Like many clubs and bars across the UK – ID scanning equipment, allowing security staff shares data with each other. Should someone be banned from one bar, the system shares the details across the network. By using the system the venue obtains better licenses and more freedoms to operate.
