ACCESSIBILITY AND THE LYRIC THEATRE
At the Lyric Theatre we aim to make our full range of activities accessible to all customers. We pride ourselves on being accessible to everyone who enters our doors. We offer a free carer seat to any customer who needs essential assistance to attend the theatre. Below is a list of the facilities we offer.
We have an accessible entrance at Ridgeway Street and lift access to all floors. We have two extended disabled parking bays with dropped kerbs in front of the Ridgeway Street entrance. This entrance can also serve as a drop-off point for customers with access needs. We have wheelchair spaces in several areas within both auditoria.
In the Main Stage we have a rise and fall platform, offering seating in Row J. Other options are available in Row R and the Balcony. We ask customers to give us advance notice of their needs when booking.
We have accessible toilets (left and right handed) on different levels of the building. Infra-red audio enhancement is available in both auditoria, to assist customers with hearing and visual impairments. Audio equipment can be collected from our Kiosk in advance of the show.
Baby changing facilities are available on the ground floor. An adult changing mat is also available, on request from our Box Office.
Babe-in-arms tickets are available for children under the age of two years old who do not require their own seat. This ticket is free of charge and must be booked through Box Office.
We welcome assistance dogs in both auditoria. Again, we ask customers to give us advance notice of their needs when booking and bring the accompanying documentation. We offer a free carer seat to any customer who needs essential assistance to attend the theatre.
For Lyric Theatre productions, we offer captioned, signed and audio described performances.FIND OUT MORE
