welcome mat

Our aim is to be a welcoming venue for everyone, ensuring that each and every visit is an enjoyable and special experience. Our friendly staff are always ready to assist if needed.

Wheelchair spaces are available in the Main House in front of the tiered seating – these must be booked in person or by phone.

WC – Accessible toilet is available on the ground floor. Car parking spaces are located in public car park across the road from the theatre. Parking is free for all blue badge holders in any space.

Assistance Dogs are welcome throughout the venue. If you need us to look after an assistance dog during a performance, please let us know in advance so we can arrange this. If you would like your assistance dog to stay with you in the auditorium, please let us know at the time of booking so that we can ensure there is sufficient space for you and your dog in the auditorium.

Our auditorium can be accessed ‘on the flat’, however our seating is raked which means there are stairs to each row. Here’s a picture of our auditorium (taken from the top back) which gives an indication of the layout:
