Access

JOIN OUR ACCESS SCHEME

We aim to be as welcoming and accessible to as many people as possible. That’s why we’re launching our new Access Scheme for performances in our theatre.

If you are d/Deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent, or have other accessibility requirements due to physical or mental health conditions, we invite you to join our Access Scheme so we can provide the best possible service for you when you visit us to see a performance.

We offer British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted performances, sensory-adapted and dementia-friendly (relaxed) performances, and welcome assistance dogs.

People who join the Access Scheme will be able to:

  • Book tickets for wheelchair or mobility scooter users online

  • Receive information on any upcoming access performances

  • Receive free tickets for their essential companion or companions

Fill in the application form below to join the Access Scheme.

All the information you supply will be securely stored in your customer account, using encrypted software and subject to strict data protection protocols, and will only be used to assist you in accessing The Garage. Please see our Privacy Policy for more details. Your application will be reviewed within three working days, and we will then email with you with confirmation of your acceptance on to the scheme.  That email will explain how the scheme works and what you need to do next.
