A spokesperson for Orchard Live, promoter of the concert, said: “The Tom Jones event at Rhyl Events Arena on September 1 has always been advertised and sold as a full-fledged concert and as a result we are unfortunately not not able to allow folding chairs or picnic furniture in the arena.
“We have an accessible viewing area with temporary seating for customers with accessible needs, but tickets sold out very quickly for that area as space was limited.
“The number of tickets made available for the accessible area was determined by several factors, including the number of people present and an assessment of the health and safety risks of this standing concert.
“As stated in the terms and conditions for this event, unfortunately we cannot allow additional furniture or seating in this event.”
