Access for All Scheme

Our Access for All scheme has been designed for people with physical/sensory or cognitive disabilities, and is a practical display of the Grand Opera House’s belief that there should be equal access to our theatre for everyone. Its purpose is to help us to provide you with the best possible service – each time you book we will store details of your booking requirements for the future, helping us to find appropriate seating for you quickly and easily.

It is free to join and you can update us at any time of any changes to your access requirements by contacting our Box Office, who will update your membership records. Your membership will be valid for two years.

To join the scheme, please complete the following below in full or complete this  form: 20180401_FRM_AccessForAll_V1 and return to our Box Office.
