Getting into the Venue

Accessible entrance to the auditorium is provided through a third side exit door on Rupert Street. From this entrance, there is one 12cm step up to the front of the Dress Circle. Seats A3-6 an A30-33 can be removed to provide up to four wheelchair spaces. This section is suitable for wheelchair and scooter users. Other sections must be reached by stairs as there is no customer lift available.
