Performances for all!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Not being sure of quite what to expect it was great to discover the range of performances and opportunities on offer for disabled people.
Transport & Parking
Parking can be arranged on site for people with limited mobility; simply get in touch to discuss your requirements. Public transport operates nearby and it's easy to get into the building from street level.
Good finding a clearly marked step free route to get in the building. Once inside there was a dropped counter with staff on hand to help. There were plenty of signs to help you navigate once you knew the name of the area you were heading for. A gloriously spacious lift takes you up to the main floor were there's a cafe, the booking office (dropped counter), and an accessible toilet. I visited several of the performance areas and these were all easily accessible to me as a powerchair user. Some performances were tailored for hearing impaired people; as well as relaxed performances.
I visited a couple of the accessible toilets and these were modern and fairly spacious.
The staff I meet were knowledgeable, helpful and very keen to make the experience of visiting a good one. Some creative thinking was evident about opening up the performances to as wider audience as possible. There were infa red sound systems, induction loops, sighted guide training and more.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
One of those places where once visited you know you have to go again!
