Auditorium facilities

  • There is access to the stage via a wheelchair lift stage right. The chair of the session will ensure wheelchair users are called in plenty of time to access the stage. 
  • An induction loop system, which can be linked to hearing aids.
  • Sign language interpretation during all auditorium sessions; a number of seats are reserved for attendees using this service, at the front of the auditorium.
  • Reserved seats at the front of the auditorium for those who would benefit from being closer to the stage due to a visual impairment.
