We have gender inclusive and accessible toilets located in the basement and in our foyer, approximately 10m from our theatre space. Our basement space can be accessed either via lift or stairs.
The box office and bar are located on the right as you enter the venue with the theatre space to your left and seating area and toilets to your right. During daytime office hours there will always be at least one member of administrative staff present at the theatre to greet you. From 6pm there will be two members of box office staff available.
Throughout the day (10am-6pm), you will need to ring the door bell on the right hand side of the double doors to be let in. For shows, the front door will open from approximately 6.30pm, with the doors to the theatre opening usually around 5-10 minutes before the start of each show. If you have booked for a 9pm show, we recommend arriving around 8.30pm to allow time to collect your tickets. If you are a wheelchair user or require seating assistance we will make an effort to seat you first. Please notify us in advance if you need assistance by emailing us at email@example.com stating which show you’re coming to, and any specific requirements.
In the theatre the majority of our seating is on raised platforms, however we have one row on the front ground level. Please let us know if you're a wheelchair user so we can remove enough seats to accommodate you. This advance notice is helpful for us as removing the benches has a consequential impact on seating capacity in the theatre. If you would prefer to not sit in your wheelchair for the performance let us know on your arrival and we will arrange this for you.
When collecting tickets all we require is the name the tickets are booked under. If you are collecting a student or senior ticket we ask that you bring a valid ID with you.
A note for artists: Our lighting and sound desks are located at the back of the theatre space with a large step up. Unfortunately, currently this isn’t accessible to wheelchair users.
Our theatre seats are 46 cm / 18in wide. However, laid out in the space they are not touching so there is a clearance of around 50.5cm / 20in per person.
There are a variety of car parks in the nearby area. For the best parking options suitable for your needs, we recommend Camden Council’s website, Parkopedia or JustPark.
