The Mumford Theatre's seating is fully tiered and for this reason there is limited provision for wheelchair users.
If you have difficulty with stairs please let us know when you are booking your tickets.

The theatre can accommodate up to 5 wheelchair users for each performance in seat positions A7-16.

In order to maintain access for as many wheelchair users as possible, accompanying customers may be asked to take seats in rows behind the wheelchair positions (e.g. in seats B7-17) rather than in row A.

Disabled customers who need to be accompanied for assistance purposes are entitled to an Essential Companion ticket, free of charge, in addition to the concession ticket for themselves.

Toilet facilities are by the theatre entrance and are accessible using a RADAR key. If you don't have a RADAR key, staff at the Box Office will be able to lend you one, though there are two other disabled toilets nearby which do not require a RADAR key.

Disabled parking may be possible on-site for Blue Badge holders, subject to availability. If you wish to request on-site disabled parking, please telephone the University's Facilities Helpdesk on 0845 196 6464. Otherwise, there is level access to the theatre from the campus entrances on Bradmore Street and East Road.
