Venue Information

Opening Times: The theatre doors open from 1 hour before the start of each performance for ticket holders only. Auditorium doors open approximately 30 minutes before the start of the performance but this will vary with each production. Due to COVID-19 we are operating staggered arrival times. This arrival time will be included on your ticket. 

Entrance: The main entrance to the theatre is located on Grey Street, including an accessible entrance equipped with a push button automated door.

Lift: The customer lift can be accessed via the stalls foyer, to the left of the auditorium doors. This lift services all levels of the theatre, including the Olivier suite and all accessible toilet levels. The lift can be in high demand during peak periods, and priority use is for disabled customers or those with reduced mobility. 

Buggies: We have limited space in foyer areas for prams and buggies but understand for families a pram or buggy is an essential mode of transport. With the agreement of the Duty Manager buggies will be given a designated storage location but are left at customers own risk. These items cannot be stored inside the auditorium for safety reasons. 

Bicycles: Whilst there is no bicycle storage in the theatre itself, there are lots of cycle racks nearby and around the city centre.
