The Playhouse has two main entrances and the one on the left-hand side has fully automatic doors which can be opened by pressing the silver button on the wall.

Once inside, the reception and Box Office are just by the doors. Please ask a member of the theatre staff for your headset, large print and braille cast list.

If you would like to listen to the introductory notes, you should collect your headset in good time to take your seat 15 minutes before the start of the performance.
