Access Tickets
Customers who wish to claim deaf or disability-related concessions will be asked to complete a short form, which will sign them up to the access list.  This will ask for their contact information (name, address, email, telephone) and give options as to the nature of their access requirements (e.g. wheelchair space / aisle seat / seat at the front etc). These details will be recorded electronically on patron records on our ticketing system.

The patron will be asked, on completion of their access form, for proof of Disability Living Allowance or Independent Living Allowance (or another suitable piece of formal documentation).  Please note that blue badges (for cars) are not suitable for this purpose.

If customers are unable to use seats in the upper levels of the theatre, they will be entitled to buy tickets in the Stalls (max 2 per customer per event) at the cheapest standard price on offer (usually the price of a rear Upper Circle seat).

Companion Ticket Policy
One free ticket for the companion of a deaf or disabled person who is not able to attend the event unaccompanied is available on all performances. Deaf and disabled patrons pay the lowest ticket price available.

Sennheiser Infrared audio transmission systems are an effective alternative to hard wired systems. Listeners wear an infrared receiver with headphones, headset or stethoset. Receivers can be collected from the Box Office at the main entrance.

Please note that unfortunately our infra-red system does not currently reach all parts of the auditorium. Please click here for a map of the seats with the best signal strength. If you have any questions, please call the Box Office
