Can I bring a camera with me to a concert or event?

Many guests are extremely excited about seeing their favourite shows and want to capture that moment to share with friends and family HOWEVER in most cases photo taking is prohibited during events. In most cases it is viewed as infringement of copyright laws and legislation and flash photos can be distracting and potentially dangerous to performers, especially those of a dance or speaking performance nature.

The general rule of thumb for photos is:

  • No flash photography
  • No professional cameras (this is defined as any camera with a detachable or extendable lens)
  • No audio or video recording from any source
  • Do not assume photo taking is permitted at all shows
  • Additionally, the WFCU Centre staff reserves the right to restrict use of other types of cameras should they feel the quality and/or type of camera fail to protect the artist and/or venue's interests.
