Access

We aim to make every customer's visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Please advise us of your needs at the time of booking and we will do everything we can to help.

We offer a range of captioned, audio described, relaxed and sign language interpreted performances. You can find details of all the productions currently offering an assisted performance here. Both our venues have level access points, ramps, lifts and adapted toilets available for customers with disabilities. Assistance Dogs are welcome in both the Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall.

We offer an infra-red Sennheiser transmission system to relay sound to customers with impaired hearing. Headsets and neck loops are available free of charge from our foyer Access desks.

Reduced price tickets are available to customers with disabilities, subject to status and availability. Should you require the support of a carer or companion, you can join our Access Requirement Register to benefit from a reduced price on their ticket, too.

If you have a query about accessibility, please contact our Access Officer Emily Malen via email at trch.access@nottinghamcity.gov.uk
You can also speak to the Box Office on 0115 989 5555 during opening hours – Monday to Saturday 9am – 8.30pm.
