The North Wall has no dedicated customer parking, and on-street parking bays are for resident permit holders at certain times of the day. Blue Badge Holders can park on the double yellow line immediately outside the main entrance on South Parade for up to three hours. Alternatively, unlimited parking is available on the single yellow line on the opposite side of the road after 4pm.
There are two spaces reserved for wheelchair users for each performance, located to the rear of the auditorium. A bench is removed to accommodate each wheelchair.
For audience members wishing to transfer from their wheelchair to a seat, we ask that you inform the Box Office know of your requirements when booking tickets. Our front of house team are able to store wheelchairs safely in the foyer, and return them to you at the end of the performance.
Seating configurations can vary from show to show – please contact the box office on 01865 319450 or email us for the latest information.
