What is The Hydro Club?

Membership of The Hydro Club provides a range of ticketing and hospitality benefits for events at The SSE Hydro including access to tickets, great seats and private members lounges.

How many tickets can I buy?

Each membership provides the right-to-buy two tickets for every public event at the arena. Multiple memberships can be purchased, which increase the number of tickets you can access (e.g. two memberships provide the right-to-buy four tickets).

How long do I have to book tickets after a show has been announced?

Members have a period of seven days from an Event On-Sale date during which tickets are guaranteed. Outwith this period, tickets can be requested, but are strictly subject to availability.

What about shows that have already been announced/are already on-sale?

New members can request tickets for all events that are already on-sale at the venue. Your Account Manager will be able to inform you of any dates where tickets are unavailable.

Where are the Hydro Club seats located?

Your tickets will normally be located in blocks 207-212 which have direct access to the Club lounges.

Are there restrictions on who uses my tickets?

No, you may pass your tickets on for business or personal use by guests.

What are the hospitality options?

Our members can access a choice of two lounges prior to each show. The Capital FM Starsuite is free to enter on an unreserved basis and offers drinks and light bites. The Hydro Club Restaurant offers a relaxed dining experience prior to the show and requires advance booking.
