WHAT TO TELL US
So that the venue staff can ensure you have an enjoyable experience, you can let us know when you book your tickets whether you have any specific requirements, such as the need for step free access or if you will be bringing an assistance dog. You can discuss your needs by phone in confidence with our staff or you can self-certify when registering online.
Accessible performances are scheduled as regularly as possible, so if you are specifically interested in Relaxed, Audio Described or Captioned performances, you can let us know by phone, email or when registering for your account by checking the relevant box.
HOW TO BOOK
You can make a booking in any of the following ways:
EMAIL: You can email the box office on [email protected] - this inbox will be monitored from 10am-6pm Monday to Saturday.
ONLINE: You can book online – to book access tickets, you will need to register and create an account first:
Click on 'Log In' at the top of the page. If you have your email address and password already, you can use them to access your account and book your accessible seats. If you do not have your username and password, click 'Register Now'. You will need to enter some details about yourself, including your name, email address and phone number. Then you can use the dropdown menu to select your access requirement - if you have more than one, please briefly explain any further needs you have in the 'Other Access Requirements' box or drop us an email at [email protected] so we can add the correct notes to your account. This will make future bookings even easier.
If you are interested in upcoming accessible performances, you can use the second dropdown box to let us know that you would like to be informed when they are scheduled. When any performances matching your preference are announced, we will send you an email so that you can book your tickets. You can then create a password for your account - you will need this to log in next time you want to buy tickets from us, so make it something memorable or make a note of it and keep it in a safe place. (Don't worry if you do forget it though - you can reset your password by clicking 'Log in', entering your email address and clicking 'Reset here' next to 'Forgotten Your Password?' An email will be sent to you prompting you to click a link which will take you to a page where you can enter a new password.)
Once you've entered these details, you will need to supply your postal address. This is so that your payment details can be verified with your bank and we have your address if you would like us to send you your tickets. You can enter your post code and click 'Find Address' - this will allow you to select your address from a list - or you can enter your address manually, if you would prefer. You will then be asked about your Contact Preferences - this means you can tell us how you're happy for us to get in touch with you. If you would like to be informed of upcoming productions, including accessible performances, you can decide whether you would prefer to get this information by email or by post (or both!) by ticking the box you choose. If you would like the show's producers to be able to send you details of their upcoming productions, you can check the box to let us know you're happy for selected third parties to contact you by email or post. You can unsubscribe from this at any time by logging into your account and unticking the boxes, or clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the promotional email or by emailing us at [email protected] - we will ensure no further marketing is sent to you by post or email. If you would rather not receive any contact from us or our producers, you can simply untick the boxes and we will not use your details to contact you unless there is an issue with the particular performance you have booked for. In the rare event that this happens, we will call or email you to let you know of any changes and whether you need to reschedule your tickets. Our staff can guide you through this process. Once you've submitted these details, your account will be created.
You can then find tickets to the show(s) you wish to see - accessible seats will be represented by a star icon on the seating plan.
If you hover your mouse over these star icons, you will be able to see additional information that will tell you details about the seat such as whether it is suitable for wheelchair users, whether it has a good view of captions, whether it has a good view of captions or a good signal for the hearing loop.
If you want us to set up your account for you, you can call or email and we will get you set up to purchase online. If you have requirements we have not covered in our online options, please do let us know at your earliest convenience so we can rectify this for you.
