The Riverfront aims to be accessible and welcoming to all and we are committed to making your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Art and culture is for everyone, but if you have an impairment or a specific access requirement, often a visit to the theatre or to an arts centre can be more complicated. At The Riverfront we aspire to offer our customers the very best practice in fair ticketing policy and accessibility.

  • A free ticket for personal assistants or carers for people who need their support to visit The Riverfront.
  • There are two reserved parking spaces for blue badge holders at all times. Unfortunately these spaces cannot be reserved in advance.
  • You can drop off and pick up immediately outside the entrance by coming up to the barriers at the castle end of the building, press the buzzer and you will be let in.
  • Lift access, wheelchair access and toilet facilities accessible on all levels except for the Basement space.
  • There are nine wheelchair spaces in the theatre and eleven wheelchair spaces in the studio.
  • An infra-red transmission system is available in the main and studio theatre spaces and the best quality of sound is through a headset. If you prefer to use the T Switch on your hearing aid, you will need to wear an induction loop aerial around your neck. You can borrow both items from the box office.
  • A selected number of performances a season are audio described and interpreted in British Sign Language.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing and blind and visually impaired people can now enjoy the magic of cinema at The Riverfront with subtitled and audio described screenings.
  • Assistance dogs are welcomed and can be cared for during performances by arrangement.
  • Copies of the Riverfront season brochure are available in large print and audio formats on request from The Riverfront, just call  01633 656677 or email  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
