There are 6 wheelchair spaces at the Alhambra Theatre. Level access is via Great Horton Road. Unfortunately due to the layout of our wheelchair accessible spaces, we are not able to accommodate scooters and other vehicles designed for outdoor use.
Wheelchair accessible toilets are available.
There are sign language interpreted performances, audio described performances and captioned performances at stated shows.
The auditorium at the Alhambra is equipped with infra-red audio systems. These enable patrons to independently control the level of volume required wherever they sit in the auditorium.
Headsets are available from confectionery kiosks.
We offer captioned performances for some shows. Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf, deafened or hard of hearing people access to live performance. The actors' words appear on display units at each side of the stage at the same time as they are spoken or sung. A qualified captioner operates the captions as the action happens on stage so it can be read by hard of hearing attenders at the same time as the actors are saying the words on stage.
We offer sign language interpreted performances for some shows. A signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a Sign Language Interpreter who stands on or near the stage interpreting the show for deaf attenders.
We offer audio description for some shows. Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attenders. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the visually impaired customer wears a headset and listens to a live description of the action on stage. The description only happens in between dialogue and supplements the voices of the performers in explaining the emotions and action of each scene.
