Upper Circle guide

The Upper Circle is the third tier of seating, located directly above the Circle. Seating just over 100 people across eight rows, the Upper Circle is a narrow, singular block of seating without a central aisle. There are safety rails at the ends of rows, which may potentially obstruct the view.

A large safety rail runs along the front of the Balcony, severely restricting the view of those in rows A-C. Rows reach a maximum of 21 seats and curve very slightly around the stage. There are steps to reach each row in this section.

Although not hugely distant from the stage, audience members could feel isolated from the action, particularly due to the many obstructing safety rails in this section. Despite this, a steep rake ensures no restrictions from audience members in front, even in the very back row, but causes limited legroom.


A large café-bar is available on the ground floor via steps or via customer lift. An at-seat service is available for patrons who are unable to access the bars.


Women’s and Men’s toilets are available on the Circle level. Adapted facilities are available on the Ground Floor, Mezzanine level and main foyer level.
