Wheelchair Users

There are dedicated spaces reserved for wheelchair users in our venues.  Some preparation may be required to ensure all is set up for you on arrival, and therefore we ask you to contact our Sales Team before your visit.

Malt Room Standing Gigs

Please let us know in advance if you require space for a wheelchair in a standing event or would like to book a respite seat.

A dedicated area in front of the stage can be reserved for wheelchair users (three spaces) if you inform us in advance.  We encourage you to bring a friend or colleague (one free place per wheelchair customer).  During busy gigs, there will be other members of the audience in close proximity.

Respite seats can be reserved on a first come first served basis.  The view from these chairs can be limited as there may be people standing/dancing in front of them.

Mobility Or Sight Issues

For customers who may wish to take periodic rests during a Malt Room standing gig, Brewery Arts has six seats available.  These are situated at either side of the venue and halfway between the stage and the back of the Malt Room.  This means during standing gigs the sightlines are not ideal when seated but they do provide a place to rest with a measure of seclusion from the rest of the audience.

Subtitled Screenings

Our Subtitled screenings are for the benefit of those with a hearing impairment and we strive to show films with subtitles where possible.

Hearing Aids

An infrared audio system is available in cinema screen 1. Customers will need to use our necklace loop for hearing aids to work in the ‘T’ position. A separate headset is available if customers do not have an induction loop compatible hearing aid. Induction loops are in place in the Theatre, please ask for assistance on the door.

Support Workers And Carers

People with disabilities who are unable to attend events on their own are entitled to one free ticket for their support worker or carer. Proof of status is required.

Also to help with any visit to the venue:

  • Visits to the performance venue prior to an event can be arranged with prior notice.
  • Assistance will be given if requested when queuing.  Assistance may be; portable chairs, priority access or the option of moving to a seated area until access is available.

We will seek to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ in order to accommodate any visitor to Brewery Arts. Before instigating any adjustments we would consider: the amount of disruption caused by making the adjustment; the amount of time available; the financial implications and the health and safety of others.

Car Park

  • We have a 52 space car park.
  • There are 4 spaces allocated to blue badge holders who can park free of charge for three hours.
  • Customers can be dropped off at the archway between carpark and garden with a short level journey to the main entrance or ramp to the Cinema.
  • Further information and charges can be found here
