'As you like it' ...and we did!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
Great seats in Gentleman's box P accessed from backstage which was an unexpected bonus. Front of house staff were very helpful and welcoming. And the wonderful cast took Lowri's at times rather vocal enjoyment of the whole experience completely in their strides :) !
Transport & Parking
Travelled by train: East Midlands parkway to St Pancras then Thameslink to Blackfriars. Excellent assistance at every stage.
Good general wheelchair access throughout but the lift was very small and we had a bit of a wait to get out at the end of the performance
There was a standard disabled toilet but Lowri needs a Changing Places toilet. Knowing this in advance when planning the trip we asked to change her in the first aid room (using the hoist of Mum and Dad...) which worked ok.
Staff were very helpful: in particular the young man who escorted us backstage to our seats was enthusiastic and attentive. He came promptly in the interval to see if we needed anything and at the end to help us out.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
This was a birthday treat for my husband and a real red letter day for us all from start to finish. We haven't stopped talking about it to anyone who'll listen! The lack of a changing places toilet was the only drawback for us and we hope this may be resolved soon
