Access Tickets and Seating

Seating

Due to the nature of our theatre, your choice of seats may be limited. Therefore we will offer you the most suitable seat for you and your companion, but will only charge you Price Band D for the relevant performance; for under 18s the half-price U18 rate will also apply (when that rate is available). Therefore for shows with a flat price for all seats there is no discount.

Row J is level access, and a number of wheelchair spaces are available. Rows K – T are accessed via steep steps. Whilst there are some handrails on the end of each row, these seats are not suitable for anyone with limited mobility. Rows A – I in the lower tier are accessed by steps on a gentler incline. Should grass banks become available, please note that you will be sat on the ground on the banks of grass, which may not be dry, located at the far sides of the auditorium.

Seats on the far left of the auditorium (highest numbers) are most likely to be shadier during a sunny afternoon performance. However, this will vary depending on the conditions on the day.

Access online scheme

If you book with us regularly, we have introduced a pilot scheme to give access to online booking for those wishing to purchase wheelchair spaces (including a companion seat), and tickets to one of our Assisted Performances. Going forward, once you have registered for the scheme, you will be able to book these tickets online at the access rate.
