Disabled Toilets

We have fully accessible Disabled Toilets and a Changing Places toilet, with more space to meet the needs of severely disabled people, including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other serious impairments. A Changing Places toilet has sufficient space to easily accommodate two carers, and is fitted with specialist equipment including a hoist, a height adjustable changing bench suitable for adults and children, and a shower. For security reasons our disabled toilets are radar locked but you can use your radar key to access them. If you do not have a radar key please ask for a key at Reception.

'We all enjoyed going to see / feel the stage and my two friends were very impressed with Anne Muers and Vicky Ackroyd's description. They were delightful when we met them, and so were Stage Management. So thanks to everyone involved.'
