The Hall is a Grade II-listed Victorian building. There is an access ramp to the Hall’s main entrance on Chester Road and step-free access to the building using our side entrance on Dorset Street. We have a lift which services all publicly-accessible floors in the building. We have accessible toilets on both the ground floor and the first floor. Most large events take place in our Ballroom which is on the Hall’s first floor and can be accessed by lift. Unfortunately, we do not have a Hearing Loop at the Hall at present.
Parking & taxis
There are two disabled parking spaces adjacent to the Hall on Dorset Street. We also have two dedicated disabled parking bays in our car park, which is just off Dorset Street. If you are arriving by taxi, they can pull up alongside the Hall on Dorset Street or can use the Hall’s car park for drop-off / collection.
We welcome assistance dogs in the Hall but please inform us in advance if you intend to bring an assistance dog to an event. We will require evidence that your dog is registered with an organisation that is a member of Assistance Dogs UK.
Personal assistants & carers
We recognise that some visitors might require the support of a personal assistant. In these instances, we are happy to offer an extra ticket, free of charge, to deaf and disabled visitors. Please contact Reception, for more information about event access for carers: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about access to the Hall, or you want to discuss your requirements with a member of staff, please contact the Hall’s manager Kate McGeevor: email@example.com; 07926 686224.
