Getting into the VenueThere is step-free access to the Gillian Lynne Theatre main entrance, located on Drury Lane. Upon entering the theatre, the Box Office is to the right with a lowered counter. A drop-off point is located outside of the theatre.
There is an escalator up from the foyer to the mezzanine, which leads to steps to access the Stalls and Circle. Steps are carpeted throughout the theatre and all staircases are highlighted, with handrails either side.
An alternative entrance for access patrons is available via a lift inside the Stage Door on Parker Mews. The lift gives level access to the Stalls and is only available for access patrons. There is a steep ramp over 2 steps to the lift entrance, which leads to wheelchair spaces at the back of the auditorium.
Customer AssistanceFor those who wish to use the accessible lift at the Stage Door, a member of the Front of House staff should be notified on arrival. An at-seat service is available for access patrons.
A maximum of 2 wheelchair and 1 scooter transfers are available, and those wishing to transfer must bring a companion. Scooter users are able to access the main foyer, but must transfer into the theatre’s wheelchair to access the auditorium.
