A staircase and a lift give access to all levels.

Gentlemen’s and Disabled Toilets are in the foyer on the ground floor, and Ladies’ Toilets are on the 1st floor.
The auditorium is a flexible space, with a variable capacity. Stalls seats all have backs to them; most gallery seats consist of padded benches with a padded bar on which to lean. Those who require a backed seat should make their preference clear at the time of booking.
Wheelchairs can be accommodated in the auditorium. Please let the Box Office know of your requirements when booking.
The theatre is equipped with both induction loop and infra-red systems. Those who wish to use the infra-red system should collect a headset from the Box Office, and return it at the end of the performance.
Guide dogs are welcome in the auditorium. Please request an aisle seat when you book. Alternatively our staff are happy to dog sit for you.
Smoking is not permitted anywhere in The North Wall. St Edward’s School, who own and manage The North Wall, have a no-smoking policy on their campus. Visitors to the North Wall who wish to smoke may therefore only do so in South Parade.
