Getting to the Cambridge Theatre

Arrival

There is level access to the main foyer via the first two rotunda entrances to the left side (due to a sloping pavement the third entrance on the Mercer Street side is stepped).  There are then three steps down into the Stalls, and then no further steps once inside the Stalls level of the auditorium. If level access to the Stalls is required, then customers should present in the foyer where our access host will escort them to the access entrance which is located in Earlham Street.  As well as assisting with finding their way to seating and toilet facilities, our access host is available to assist in a variety of other ways including the purchasing/collecting of tickets, purchasing of merchandise and drinks/refreshments.

The Stalls auditorium has level access and there are two dedicated wheelchair park spaces at either side of Row N. Any aisle seat between Rows L and S in the Stalls can be used for customers wishing to transfer from a wheelchair into a theatre seat.

The Dress and Upper Circle levels of the auditorium can only be accessed via routes including stairs:

Dress Circle – 31 steps from Ground Floor
