Prince Edward Theatre accessibility

Getting into the Venue

The Prince Edward main entrance is situated on Old Compton Street, with level access into the foyer. There is no step-free access from the foyer to the auditorium. Cars are able to drop-off patrons outside the entrance. The Mozart Bar is available at the foyer level, with seating.

An alternative entrance is located on Greek Street, which provides step-free access to the Dress Circle. Once inside the auditorium there is a short ramp to Box 1, which provides wheelchair spaces.

Customer Assistance

Patrons who wish to use the alternative entrance must ask a member of staff for the Access Host on arrival. The Access Host will look after access patrons for the duration of the performance. Staff are on hand to assist with navigation throughout the theatre.

Transfers are available in the Dress Circle and it is recommended that a companion is brought. The Access Host is not permitted to assist with transferring patrons to seats. Staff are able to store a maximum of 2 wheelchairs and 1 scooter per performance. An at-seat service is available for those who are unable to access the bars.

How to Book

For those who require special assistance or wish to book wheelchair spaces, it is important to book in advance and notify the theatre of any special requirements. Access patrons and their companions are eligible for significant discounts and access rates.
