Overview

At last I'm able to attend gigs at this iconic venue

Transport & Parking

3

There is plenty of on street parking in the vicinity, free with a blue badge, but no dedicated car park.

Access

3

As a manual wheelchair user, I was able to use the stair climber that is now in use here. A first time experience for me, but it was fine. The staff were exceptionally helpful and reassuring. It got me into the gig, and back to a venue I hadn't been able to access for many years, so I'm not complaining too much! Three stars because the climber is only suitable for manual chairs.

Toilets

2.5

There is an accessible loo, a larger cubicle in the ladies'. Assuming there's on in the gents' too?! It is functional but basic. The main downside is that it's on a different floor to the main concert area, so the stair climber needs to be used. Again, the staff could not have been more helpful.

I've said it already. Brilliant.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

A lift would be the obvious improvement but they're not going to do it as far as I can see. The stair climber is a means to an end and it worked for me. I'll be back!
