View Seating Plan

Circle guide

The Circle is the second tier of seating, located directly above the Stalls, with a seating capacity of 556. Rows curve around the stage, with the longest rows at the front of the Circle reaching up to 52 seats. This section is divided into seven separate blocks of seating, with aisles and steps running between each section.

A safety bar runs in front of Row A, which may occasionally restrict the view of the stage. A tall safety bar runs across the front of Row F, which can restrict this row and the rows behind. The block of seating at the front on the right is slightly angled towards the stage.

Due to the design of the theatre, the Balcony overhang should not drastically affect the view of the stage for any rows aside from perhaps Row N-O. This section offers great views of the whole stage, with standard legroom.

Bars

There are two bars available on the Circle level.

Toilets

Women’s toilets are located on the left-hand side of the Circle when facing the stage, with Men’s toilets at the rear of the seating. Further Women’s and Men’s toilets are located at the rear of the Circle.
