Four disabled parking spaces can be found directly opposite the Theatre’s main entrance. During certain times in the afternoons during term time, they may be blocked by buses, which have priority. This should not affect evening and weekend performances. We regret that disabled parking spaces cannot be booked in advance as they are shared with the College and School.
Strode Theatre has a level entrance with automatic door, adapted toilets and a maximum of three wheelchair spaces in the Theatre (rear of the centre stalls) and two in the Studio (front row) which should be booked in advance. The Studio is accessed via a lift opposite the box office. There is no lift access to the balcony area in the main house.
We regret that wheelchair spaces cannot be booked online, so please contact the box office during opening hours either in person or on the telephone. Each wheelchair space has a companion seat next to it.
The Theatre has an induction loop for all films and live events, which can be used by switching your hearing aid to the “T” position. The full benefit of this facility can be enjoyed between rows D and W. Infra red headsets are available for film screenings. These have independently adjustable volume for each earphone and can be selected to play the soundtrack (including dialogue) or audio description (where available). Please ask at the box office for further details.
