Theatre car parks are on both sides of the theatre and can only be approached from the city-bound carriageway of the Coast Road (A1058). If you are coming out of the city use the Chillingham Road roundabout to turn back down onto the Coast Road.

There is limited parking at the Theatre. Should it be necessary to park elsewhere, please DO NOT PARK on Beatrice Road, Holderness Road or in the Corner House car park as fines may apply.



The theatre building, foyer and auditorium are fully accessible to wheelchair users. Please speak to the Theatre Manager or a steward when you arrive if you require further assistance.

The main auditorium has spaces for up to 5 wheelchairs. Advance booking is always advisable for these spaces.

We have two designated disabled bay parking spaces, so we advise arriving at the theatre in good time to secure these or to park near the building.

The main auditorium has a loop system installed. Hearing aid users can amplify the sound from the stage by switching their aid to the 'T' setting.
