Access around The Stables
The Stables is highly accessible to wheelchair users and other customers with limited mobility. (The only inaccessible public area is in the raised seating part of the auditorium which has stepped seating and is reached via a staircase that is not suitable for those with mobility problems.) There is a lift available giving access to seats on lower accessible levels. We can accommodate eight people in wheelchairs per performance, subject to availability.
We have volunteer Customer Assistants available at the majority of events to help you and theywill be happy to bring refreshments to you in the auditorium during the interval. Please feel free to bring a cushion or back support with you if required. We also have available a limited number of booster seats for younger children.
Please advise our box office staff at the time of booking if you have questions or concerns about your access around the building.
There are three accessible public toilets – one as part of the main toilet area situated in the foyer; further toilets are located next to the ladies and within the gents, both accessible from the auditorium.
Facilities for Hearing Impaired Customers
The main auditorium is fitted with an Ampetronic system. To use this system you must have a hearing aid with either a switchable or auto-detect T-Setting built in. As the signal is stronger in certain areas of the auditorium please advise our box office staff at the time of booking if you would like to take advantage of this facility.
Stage 2 has its own hearing assistance system. Customers will need to wear one of our hearing devices, available from the box office. We have two types of hearing device, either to boost sound, or a personal induction loop if your hearing aid has a T-Setting.
Assistance dogs are welcome, but please advise us when you book so that we can allocate appropriate seats and inform you of any special effects that might affect your dog's comfort.
Café in2 and the main bar both have flat access from the foyer and main doors. If you are planning to eat in Café in2 and have specific dietary, seating or other requirements, please call the box office in advance of your visit. We usually offer a vegetarian ( ) and Gluten Free (GF) option, indicated on the menu, but it is difficult for us to be able to accommodate all dietary needs without notice. Please note we cannot guarantee that our food will not contain traces of nuts or other allergens.
