Access

The North Wall Theatre and Gallery are fully accessible for wheelchair users. If you have any access requirements, please inform the box office when booking tickets so that we can ensure that your visit to The North Wall is as enjoyable as possible.

Theatre Entrance

There is an 8cm step from road level to pavement outside the main entrance. Alternatively, there is a ramped pavement 30 yards towards Banbury Road.

Levels

Ground Floor: Box Office, Gallery/Foyer, Dance Studio and Theatre (stalls and lower gallery).
1st Floor: Theatre (upper gallery).
2nd Floor: Drama Studio.
3rd Floor: Technical Gallery.

A staircase and a lift give access to all levels.

The Bar

The bar is situated in the foyer, on the right as you come through the main entrance. It is normally open 30 minutes before a performance, and during the interval. There is a drop-down counter at the far-end of the bar, close to the left-hand entrance of the auditorium.

Toilets

Gentlemen’s and Disabled Toilets are in the foyer on the ground floor, and Ladies’ Toilets are on the 1st floor.

The Auditorium

The auditorium is a flexible space, with a variable capacity. Stalls seats all have backs to them; most gallery seats consist of padded benches with a padded bar on which to lean. Those who require a backed seat should make their preference clear at the time of booking.

Wheelchair Users

Wheelchairs can be accommodated in the auditorium. Please let the Box Office know of your requirements when booking.

Hearing Systems

The theatre is equipped with both induction loop and infra-red systems. Those who wish to use the infra-red system should collect a headset from the Box Office, and return it at the end of the performance.

Guide Dogs

Guide dogs are welcome in the auditorium. Please request an aisle seat when you book.

Smoking Policy

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in The North Wall. St Edward’s School, who own and manage The North Wall, have a no-smoking policy on their campus. Visitors to the North Wall who wish to smoke may therefore only do so in South Parade.
