Wheelchair access

All of our venues have disabled access. The Hibernia boat is suitable for push wheelchair access, though there are no disabled toilet facilities on the boat. Events at the Town Hall and can be accessed via lift from the ground floor.

Please notify the Box Office if you require disabled access to a venue, so that we can let them know in advance of your arrival.

Hard of Hearing

Hearing Loop Systems are set up in all our venues except The Hibernia:

  • Christ Church – Seats around the edge of the Church, closest to the wall have the strongest hearing loop signal. Patrons should switch their hearing aids to the T option to connect to the loop.
  • Town Hall (Main Room only)
  • Phyllis Court

If you contact us in advance of the event, we may be able to reserve seats towards the front of the room for you.
