A Wicked experience at the theatre
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
A very good experience at the theatre when I visited on Disabled Access Day (DAD). The theatre had made a good effort of showcasing their facilities and making me feel welcome on DAD. The entrance was the only issue I had with the place. Wheelchairs are taken up the few steps by a ramp which is quite steep but the staff were excellent at making you feel at ease. Once we negotiated the entrance, everything was great. As it was DAD, they had a few props from the show that was on, which was Wicked. This allowed you to see at close hand and touch the props. There was even some actors wandering around in costume so you were able to see at close hand what the costumes were really like. The accessible toilets were a good size and the views from the wheelchair seats were fantastic as they showed us around everywhere.
Transport & Parking
There is a very good regular bus service with buses passing the door frequently and victoria train and tube station are in close proximity. Unsure about parking as we did not take the car.
The entrance has a few steps and wheelchairs will need to use the portable ramp they bring out. It is quite steep but the staff are excellent and put you at ease.
Good sized accessible toilet in the foyer area.
The staff really were exceptionally friendly and helpful on our visit. Really can't fault them on anything.
