We have several locations around the Theatre where you can park. we have 4 disabled parking spaces outside our entrances ( 2 x  South Street, 2 x Abbey Street ) . We also have a large drop off areas on Abbey street that allows direct access to the Theatre. Please contact Box-Office if you require assistance alighting from your vehicle and we will be more than delighted to assist.

There are five spaces for wheelchair users in the main auditorium at the rear of the stalls, in Row K. Each of the five wheelchair spaces enjoys unrestricted viewing.

If you require a wheelchair space, please let us know if you require any additional assistance so that our Front of House team is aware before you arrive at the theatre for a performance.
