Access to seats in the Lower Right section is available by a set of shallow steps. There is no level access to any rows in this section.

Lower Centre

Two sets of shallow steps on either side of the Lower Centre allow access to all rows in this section. For captioned performances, seats in the first few rows may be too close to the stage to see the captions, if you're looking to book seats for a captioned performance contact the box office prior to booking. For BSL performances, the interpreter will be located on the left-hand side of the stage.

Lower Left

All rows in the Lower Left section of the venue are accessed via a set of shallow steps. For BSL performances, the interpreter will be on the left-hand side of the stage, located in front of the Lower Right section, not in front of the Lower Left.

Upper Right

A number of wheelchair spaces and access seats are reserved in row J of the Upper Right section, which is on level access with the rest of the venue. The remaining rows of seats can only be accessed via a steep set of stairs.

Upper Centre

Access seats are reserved in row J of the Upper Centre, this row is on level access with the rest of the venue and a number of wheelchairs can be accommodated. The remainder of the rows in the Upper Centre can only be accessed via steep steps. Seats in this section are a good choice for those booking captioned performances as they are far enough back to appreciate the action on the stage and to see the captions screen.

Upper Left

Access seats are located in row J of this section, alongside several spaces for wheelchair users. For those booking BSL performances, this section is the furthest away from where the interpreter will be positioned, which is in front of the Lower Right section of the venue.
