We are currently running reduced box office hours. Should you have any access enquiries please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a phone call to discuss your preferences and requirements.
For access bookings we advise you book in advance through our Box Office.
Just let us know if you require a wheelchair user space, an aisle seat, a seat near the front, or have any other requirements, so we can recommend the best seats for you.
Hall One has several dedicated wheelchair user spaces, and the flexible seating in Hall Two and the St Pancras Room allows us to accommodate wheelchair users in a number of locations depending on your preference.
If you would be unable to attend a performance without the assistance of a companion please contact the Box Office to enquire about companion seats.
Hall One is the largest of our venues and seats 420 people. The Stalls floor of Hall One is situated on the Concert level (level -2, basement level) and the Balcony floor is situated on the Gallery level (level -1, basement level). These floors can be reached via the main lift in the ground floor foyer. When attending a concert in Hall One the level and door you will need are printed on your ticket.
From the Concert level there is flat access to the two wheelchair user spaces at the back of the stalls, via the stalls east or stalls west doors. There is sloped access to the two wheelchair user spaces at the front of the stalls. If you wish to avoid the slope to the wheelchair spaces at the front of the stalls, please ask a member of staff to assist you in reaching the access lift. There are no steps to any seats in the stalls.
There are 7 steps from the outer balcony door to the inner balcony door, and there is a platform lift to the inner door for wheelchair users or audience members with limited mobility. The balcony wheelchair user space is reached through the Balcony north inner door, and there is flat access to the wheelchair user space.
Both Hall Two and the St Pancras Room have level access from the Concert level foyer. Flexible seating means that wheelchair users can be accommodated depending on their preference.
Please mention your requirements when booking seats so we can try and seat you towards the front of the auditorium.
There is an induction loop at Box Office to assist hearing-aid users. An infrared system is available in both Hall One and Hall Two. Two types of hearing enhancement are available – headsets for audience members who don’t use a hearing aid, or neck loops for use when hearing aids are switched to the ‘T’ position. Headsets are available on the day of a performance from any member of our Front of House team. Alternatively they can be pre-arranged for collection by contacting the Box Office team in advance. Please mention your requirement to Box Office when booking.
At the main entrance of the building there are two accessible doors operated by large push buttons at wheelchair height on either side of the manual revolving doors. There are two additional accessible doors operated by large push buttons at wheelchair height which are accessible via the canal entrances.
Kings Place has step free access at the front of the building via York way and step free access by the canal entrance via Crinan Street.
Visitors are welcome to take assistance dogs into the Halls or they can be left with a designated member of staff who will provide fresh drinking water and a comfortable place to reside whilst you enjoy the performance. Please inform the Box Office team if you would like your dog to remain with you in the auditorium during the performance, and we can advise the best seating location. We also welcome participating in assistance dog training.
The Front of House lift (1050mm wide x 1350mm deep) has automatic doors, tactile buttons, and voice announcements. The lift serves the ground floor (0), gallery level (-1) and concert level (-2). There are two larger lifts for larger wheelchairs and mobility vehicles. Please ask a member of Box Office staff for assistance in reaching the lifts.
Accessible toilets are located on the ground floor (at the top of the stairs to gallery level), balcony level (at the bottom of the stairs from the foyer to gallery level) and concert level (between the concert bar and cloakroom).
Blue badge holders, or the driver of a passenger holding a valid badge, can park on Crinan Street in any of the ‘Residents Only’ or ‘Pay & Display’ bays for an unlimited time. Crinan Street runs adjacent to Kings Place and offers street level access to Kings Place.
Crinan Street also has one single bay with a yellow line, where Blue badge holders can park for up to three hours, providing the clock card is displayed and set at the time of arrival. Please ensure that your badge, and if applicable your clock, are displayed on the dashboard with all information clearly visible.
