Accessibility

One of the aims of the Theatre Royal Regeneration Project in 2013 was to greatly improve accessibility, this included:

  • Accessible toilets on all four floors – including The Lab in the basement
  • No external steps to the front entrance
  • Steps replaced by a ramp and a lift on the ground floor
  • All counters have a lower section for wheelchair users

For patrons who are unable to attend performances unless accompanied; upon purchase of a ticket, an additional seat is available free of charge for the companion (for most shows).

When available, programme notes for audio described performances will be available two days before the performance and are available to download on the relevant show page.

For more specific information relating to disability access at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, please see the Disabled Go website.

On Stage Touch Tour

We are offering a Touch Tour for One Man, Two Guvnors, on Saturday 19 July at 12.45pm. On-Stage Touch Tours are available on request and are ideal for patrons who are wheelchair users or have a visual or sight impairment. Lasting approximately one hour, they offer patrons an opportunity to be on-stage in both the The Lyric and The Drum to enjoy a sensory experience of sound and lighting effects, together with a chance to handle both props and costumes. Please call our Box Office on 01752 267222 if you wish to come along to this tour.
