Access Information

Wheelchair users

We are pleased to welcome people with disabilities.

The Opera House has three spaces for wheelchair users in the stalls.

There are also spaces for wheelchair users at the Pavilion Arts Centre.

While the main church at St John’s is accessible to all, the balcony is not recommended to anyone with mobility issues.

Toilet facilities for the disabled are available in both venues.

Help With hearing

There are a limited number of passive infra-red (PIR) systems in both the Opera House and Arts Centre. These work through a special headset (rather than your hearing aid), which is available from the theatre – please reserve one when booking tickets (a £10 cash deposit is required). There is also an induction loop system at the counter in both Box Offices.

Facilities for people with disabilities

Please call the Festival office on 01298 70395 for information about facilities for disabled people at all Festival venues. We will do our best to facilitate your visit to the Festival.
