Wheelchair access

The entrance to the Box Office and the foyer is on street level. To get to the theatre room (one level down) or to the café (one level up) you may use our open elevator. It measures 125×85 centimeters and carries a maximum of four people or 400 kilos.

Please let us know that you use a wheelchair/walking frame when you book your ticket and we will provide you with accessible seats in the auditorium. These must be booked via our Box Office. If you need a companion for the performance, let us know when you make the booking/purchase. If you do not wish to remain in your wheelchair during the performance, please speak to our ushers on site and they will help you to park the wheelchair/walking frame in a suitable place. This way we can best cater to security needs in the unlikely case of an evacuation.
