ASSISTANCE
On the evening of an event, we advise disabled customers to arrive at the venue 15 minutes prior to the doors opening for early entrance. When you arrive, staff will be available to assist you if required. Please make yourself known to the Box Office on arrival.

STEPS
There is an access ramp at the front entrance of the building or 2 steps from the street into the venue. The foyer and bar area into the auditorium is step free. The circle seating area is only accessible via steps. Unfortunately there is no lift to the circle area.
There are:
• 30 steps from the main entrance to the circle foyer.
• 10 steps from the circle foyer to circle auditorium entrance.
• 12 steps from circle auditorium entrance Row F to A.
• 39 steps from circle auditorium entrance Row G to Z and rear circle standing.

For example, if you have a seat in row F of the circle there are a total of 52 steps.

VIEWING PLATFORMS
The wheelchair viewing platform is located at the rear of the stalls and can accommodate four wheelchair users and four personal assistants per performance. Any wheelchair user that is able to transfer from their wheelchair into a stalls aisle seat are preferred to do so. As the venue can only accommodate four wheelchair users on the viewing platform it is preferred that these areas are reserved for those that are unable to transfer into a seat. Your wheelchair can then be stored at the rear of the stalls and returned by an usher at the end of the event or as and when needed.

DISABLED ACCESS TOILET
This is located at the rear of the stalls by the wheelchair access seating ramp. The Disabled Access toilet has been fitted with a RADAR lock; please bring your key with you to access the toilet. If you do not own a RADAR key, please ask the staff member who is assigned to the Disabled Access ramps for the key.

PARKING IN THE BOROUGH OF HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM
Hammersmith & Fulham Council is a dedicated participant in the European Blue Badge Scheme. As long as you display your badge and clock correctly, you can park in any shared use bay in the borough free of charge. This applies to all badge holders, not just borough residents. There are also a number of Disabled Use bays in the borough, which any Blue Badge holder can park in. Blue Badge holders can also park on a single yellow line for up to 3 hours. Please remember, you must display both your badge and clock to park in Disabled Use bays or on single yellow lines.
A Blue Badge does not entitle the holder to:
Park where there are loading restrictions. These are shown by yellow markings on the kerbstones. Signs nearby will tell you when a restriction applies.
Park across a dropped kerb. These are used by prams, wheelchairs and other pedestrians. Blocking them can cause serious difficulties to these people when they try to cross the road.
Park in front of a crossover. This is an access crossing for vehicles to drive off the road onto private land.
Park in a bay marked for other special users, for example Doctor’s bay, Market Traders bay, Motorcycle bay or Goods Vehicles only. As part of Hammersmith & Fulham council’s commitment to the Blue Badge Scheme, Penalty Charge Notices may be issued to vehicles which are parked incorrectly or appear to be misusing Blue Badges. In some circumstances, vehicles may be relocated. If you receive a penalty charge notice while displaying a Blue Badge, you have the same rights to challenge the ticket as any other motorist.
