THEATRE ACCESSIBILITY

The Little Theatre provides a range of facilities for disabled people and members of the deaf community.

For wheelchair users, a visit to our theatre does not involve negotiating stairs or heavy doors. We now have fully automatic main doors (installed 2021), with no steps between the pavement and most of the ground floor. There is a wheelchair ramp into the theatre bar, avoiding two steps down.

There is also a fire-safe lift between the ground floor and the main auditorium, which may be used by wheelchair users and those with walking difficulties.

Spaces for wheelchairs are made available at all performances, as shown on our seating plan (row D coloured pink), with the provision for escorts’ seats (D4 and E1, coloured blue). Seats C1-3 are removed for access.

Wheelchair patrons are requested to be in the foyer half an hour before the performance begins to ensure that Front of House staff are available to assist you.

There are toilet facilities for disabled people on each of the two floors of the theatre.

If booking on the day of the performance, wheelchair patrons are asked to do so before midday, to allow time for seating to be adjusted in good time.

Concessionary ticket prices apply to wheelchair users and one escort.

Note that some backstage areas of the theatre are difficult to access for wheelchair users.


INFRA RED AMPLIFICATION SYSTEM

For patrons with impaired hearing, an infra red amplification system is provided. Headsets may be borrowed from the Front of House staff in the Foyer.


AUDIO DESCRIBED PERFORMANCES

For blind and partially-sighted patrons, we often offer a touch tour of the stage and set preceding Saturday matinée performances. Please request whether or not this option is available prior to booking.

Concessionary ticket prices apply to registered blind patrons and one escort.

Early booking is advisable making clear your special requirements.
