There are two spaces for wheelchair users in the Stalls. Inform Box Office at the time of booking if you require one. When you arrive at the theatre, make yourself known to a member of the front-of-house team (the main entrance is staffed from at least one hour before the performance). You will be escorted to the Webber Street side of the building where there is ramped access leading directly into the Stalls. Entry to the auditorium is not possible until approximately 30 minutes before the start of the performance. There is an accessible toilet close to this entrance.
Audio described performances and touch tours available. Check shcedule with box office.
The auditorium is fitted with a Sennheiser Infrared System.
Two types of hearing device are available: headsets for people who don't use hearing aids but would like amplified sound; or neck loops for use with a hearing aid by switching it to the ‘T’ setting.
If you have a digital hearing aid, please ensure that the ‘T’ setting is available because not all come with this setting installed.
Headsets should be collected from the cloakroom in the main foyer before the performance. A returnable deposit of £5 is payable.
Inform the Box Office when booking if you'd like to make use of the system so they can advise on where best to sit.
