Access For All

Providing access for all has been key in our redevelopment project, is an essential part of what we do, and our mission as a theatre. We welcome all theatregoers and provide an extensive range of services. As part of the redevelopment of the theatre we are working with David Bonnett Associates Access Consultants to further improve the accessibility of our venue.  

Following our £6m redevelopment, our new building has vastly improved access provisions, including:

  • a new lift to Dress Circle level
  • six new spaces for wheelchair users in the Dress Circle, in addition to those in the Stalls
  • improved and additional accessible toilets
  • levelling and re-surfacing of entrance level to improve access into the building

Concessions are available for patrons with disabilities.
