Access information

Wheelchair access

There is level access to the RADA Bar and Foyer through the main Malet Street entrance. Access to all theatres by lift from the rear of the Foyer. There are designated seating areas in each of the three theatre spaces for patrons with limited mobility or those using a wheelchair. If you wish to sit in one of these designated areas, inform the Box Office when making the booking. The booking clerk should be advised whether you will be using a theatre seat or remaining in your wheelchair. You should arrive no later than fifteen minutes prior to curtain up - this will allow adequate time for one of the Ushers to escort you to your seat before the House opens.

Visual assistance

Audio-described performances are sometimes available - check schedule for details.

Hearing assistance

Every theatre is fitted with a Senheisser infra-red audio assistance system. Units can be reserved in advance through the Box Office, or simply collected on arrival from the Duty Manager. The system can be used either to enhance a hearing-aid signal in the same way as a hearing loop, or simply as a stand alone headset unit.
