Standing and Queueing

If you have an access card with the difficulty queueing symbol, you are able to queue jump at our Main Entrance and our Piano Bar Entrance. This is not applicable at our Access Entrance, as all patrons who use this entrance may have an additional need to get into the building or their seats quickly.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
We have 4 wheelchair positions in our venue which are street level. Each of these has a single fold-down chair next to it. We also have a wheelchair lift that can accommodate a total weight of 300kg and will take you to our two Access boxes, G and H which can also accommodate one wheelchair and up to 3 additional patrons.
Our Piano Bar is wheelchair accessible, however there is not an internal wheelchair accessible route from this bar to the wheelchair positions.

Short Distances

Short distance
If you struggle with walking longer distances, please use our Access Entrance which is located on Denmark street and opens 30 mins before any performance.
Please note that we do not have a lift in the venue, so the Grand and Upper circles are only accessible via staircase. All seating areas including the stalls have steps throughout the auditorium.
