Access To Toilets

Access To Toilets
Provided a patron lets us know that they may need to make an urgent exit to use the lavatory, they can be seated in a stalls box or on an aisle at the rear of all levels. Re-admittance before the interval is possible only in the stalls boxes, however. On other levels, it's at the discretion of the management on the night. The show can be watched on a latecomers screen until the interval if re-admittance is not possible.

Front of House staff are happy to look after Assistance Dogs and are experienced in doing this. We do have a water bowl and can take the dog for a walk if required. Assistance Dogs are permitted in the auditorium with the patron provided they are on an aisle or in a box.
