This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Mobility Scooter


The National Centre for Early Music (NCEM) is a brilliantly accessible venue with a ramp and then heaps of space inside. OK, the thresholds meant a bit of a bump but nothing drastic and it was easy to find a place to sit then put my Luggie scooter to one side or if you were in a wheelchair you could easily site it at the end of a row or move a chair out of the way. As we entered the auditorium, staff offered to help should we need it. In fact, the evening we were there for Hungarian band Söndörgo, there were three people using wheels of various kinds. There is an accessible loo and leaflets are displayed at a reachable height. They also do refreshments: beer, wine, soft drinks etc before the show and during the interval. If you would like to read about the band we saw, copy and paste this link:

Transport & Parking


There is a small carpark (the website says there are two designated disabled bays) and you can park in the street outside - you need to turn up early to get a space. We have often been by taxi and have never had a problem being dropped off/picked up from this venue.



Ramp to door, slight bump at thresholds. Plenty of space. In the past we have asked for a chair to wait in foyer (in my pre-scooter days) when auditorium was not open when we arrived but it usually is.





Unobtrusively offered to help without being asked.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

Always a joy to visit, so glad it is accessible to all. Lovely atmosphere.
