Night at the underbelly
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Getting to the venue to see Jess Robinson: Unraveled The streets surounding George Square are cobbled and a bit uneven under foot. When we were waiting in the queue, like at other venues we have been at, a member of staff come to us and told us that we would be taken through a side door which was accessible up a small ramp just before the doors were about to open. This allowed us to get seated and settled before the public come in. The view we got from the wheelchair accessible seating area was just to the side of the stage in the front row so we had a fantastic view of the show. The accessible toilets are located outside in George Square Gardens and they are extremely spacious. There is a good bus service that runs past the venue with the nearest bus stop Approximately 5 min walk away.
Transport & Parking
Bus service which stops approximately 5 min walk away. I didn't see anywhere for accessible on street parking close by. The train station is about a 20-30 minute walk away but you would be able to get a bus from outside the station towards the venue and get as close as about 5-10 min walk away.
The access in the auditorium itself was good for wheelchairs. Ramped access through a side entrance and it brings you to the wheelchair seating area next to the stage with very good views. Outwith the auditorium, within the gardens are the bar and food kiosks. The gardens are all covered with artificial grass all over the ground and It is mostly level.
Very good sized accessible loos that are located beside the bar and food kiosks outside the auditorium.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A word of warning, there Is more than one venue within the George Square Garden and if you buy drink in one venue you will not be permitted to take it to the other. We bought drink at one venue and then realised we were at the wrong venue. Took it around to the other theatre but were refused entry.
