Accessibility Guide

As part of Camden Arts Centre’s commitment to access, equality and diversity, we have made physical adjustments to our toilets, removing our urinals and updating our signage to make all toilets accessible for our audiences. We wish to create an environment where all staff, artists and visitors are afforded respect and dignity; this is a step towards making the Centre more accessible for trans and non-binary people, and parents with children. Our longer-term aim is to increase the number of toilet cubicles when funding allows. If you have any comments, questions or feedback, please contact
