    Anyone been to Wembley for a concert can you take a bag in please?

    HI
    Going to see Green Day tomorrow with partner and 2 boys. I was thinking of taking a back pack with a few drinks etc in so that we only buy a burger or something and save on the cost a little especially as we will be getting in as early as poss to get seats.
    Does anyone know if i can take a back pack with bottles of water in. My partner thinks we may be stopped as they could be turned into missiles.
    Thanks in advance.

    don;t know about wembley but gigs normally you are stopped and searched you are not allowed any drinks etc in, you are expected to pay rip off prices inside

    but if you can sneak them in a handbag or something do it worse they will do is take it off you

    done similar at festivals :-D

    Yes you can take a bag in as my wife came with me
    pmsl

    They dont like trolleys full of booze for some reason.

    A bit off the point but just asking cos you say you are getting in as early as possible to get seats - is it not allocated seating?

    just take a bag of bottles and food etc and put something on top - scarf, phones wallet and other stuff.

    When my bags been looked at they only seem to look at whats on top - theyv never asked me to fully empty it to see whats at the bottom

    No unfortunately we couldnt get named seats....we are in what is called unreserved which means you either stand on the pitch or find a seat in what is the first level which is the first tier of seats all the way round. Because we are taking kids we really need to get in as soon as it opens at 4.30 and rush to find some seats. Must admit i am a bit scared as we have never got this sort of ticket before but it was that or nothing. Because we will be getting there early i was really hoping to take some drink and snacks with us as i know how expensive it will be.

    Might add the kids are 11 and 13 so not too young but i would not want them in any scuffle on the pitch. We saw Green Day at Birmingham and my youngests face was an expression as the lead singers language is awful. I think the kids thought it added to the fun. Needless to say i told them not to repeat it at school. Great gig cant wait to see them again.

    Yes think you are right...worst thing that will happen is they will take 4 bottles of water of us. The kids can stuff some sweets etc in their pockets. I understand security but i do think they steal money off you. I have paid £2 for a bottle of water before which seems a rip off to me especially as at a gig i really think it would be a health issue if you werent drinking water.

    For football matches they do search the bags properly but do allow you to bring in outside food. No alcohol or cans of drink, cartons of juice were fine not sure about bottles. They did provide plastic cups for my friend to empty 6 cans of coke into.

    Can I bring my own food and drink to Wembley Stadium?Visitors are allowed … Can I bring my own food and drink to Wembley Stadium?Visitors are allowed to bring small quantities of food for personal use only.

    Thanks everyone it is a bit ambiguous as on the great pamphlet choc1969 pointed out it states you can take cartons but not bottles but also on the wembley site it says bottles of water as long as they can decant which i presume means without the lid on. I guess the security will do what they have been told regardless of what it should or shouldnt be. I will take a large handbag and if they take the water off me no worries. Hopefully they will just ask us to take lids off. Seems perdantic but it would save us money. We will be buying burgers etc as it is. I will make sure we all have some pockets for some sweets.
    Thank you very much for all your help Wish i could take you all with me.

    I have been to concerts before whereby they do allow water in, however security remove and keep the caps, this is done to stop them being used as a weighty missile, however this is very inconvenient also at day long festivals if you have a few bottles of water you want to lug around with you.

    Bottle of water, well mannered, trustworthy face works miracles. It helps if you're genuinely not a ************************************************

    yeah, or just take the caps off some bottles before and keep them in your pocket, so when they take the cap off you at entrance you can just replace the cap when inside!

    Just thought i would add to the thread in case anyone ever searches to find same question.
    Firstly concert was brilliant.
    You could take bags and back packs in and they were only quickly checking you could easily have had a bottle rapped in a jumper at bottom of bag.
    You can take cartons of drink in.
    You can take any food in.
    If you did have a bottle they made you pour it into a plasic cup which i did with two of ours. I had genuinely left one bottle at the bottom of my bag by mistake and they didnt check.
    Someone in the queue had been to manchester and said they let you take bottles in but tops were removed so it seems each venue is different.
    Thanks for all your help before i went.
