At GSC we believe that experience of live theatre should be accessible to all.

However, as a site-responsive theatre company using unique, non-theatre venues, (such as churches, gardens, castles, etc.), these locations may not have always been intended for theatre performances and their audiences.

Nevertheless we will always seek to ensure our productions are as accessible, and as welcoming, as possible.

Specific details for the current season venue(s) can be found below, whilst the links on the right take you to specific information ---->


Spiegeltent, Challengers' Field, Burchatt's Farm, Stoke Park, London Road, Guildford, GU1 1TU 

View on a map (look for the GSC rose logo)

The Spiegeltent is fully accessible. The path to the field in which the Spiegeltent sits is a short walk along a rough path from Burchatt's Farm. This can be uneven and maybe wet given the time of year.This path will be lit.

There is a small ramp into the Spiegeltent.

Toilet facilities are located at Burchatt's Farm; these are GBC public toilets and have disabled access.

GSC cannot guarantee accessible parking spaces at Burchatt's Farm as it is a public car park, but there is ample parking across the road at The Spectrum Leisure Centre, a short walk from the Spiegeltent. It is about 10 mins walk from car-to-tent.

There is NO PARKING directly outside The Spiegeltent.

Assistance Dogs
Hearing and guide dogs are welcome at all performances. Please note that performances can involve loud noises.
Vision & Hearing Impairment
We regret we cannot yet provide a hearing induction loop or BSL performances at our productions. We are investigating this for the future.

However, please do contact the Box Office and we may able to help by arranging to seat you closer to the stage/action.

Wherever possible we do offer Audio Described performances - see below.

Relaxed Performances

To be confirmed

A relaxed performance is open to everyone and is intended specifically to be sensitive to and accepting of audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, anyone with sensory and communication disorders or learning disabled people. Babes-in-arms and small children are also welcome. This means that there is a more casual approach to front-of-house etiquette and we ask audience members to be aware of people's needs to move or make involuntary noise. If you have any questions please contact us at info@guildford-shakespeare-company.co.uk

Audio Described Performances

Our popular audio described performances for the blind and visually impaired continue. Infra-red headsets provide a private live commentary of the onstage action whilst the dialogue continues live simultaneously. A free touch tour before the before the performance gives patrons a chance to experience the set, handle props and costumes. Booking essential. Audio Description by Kerry Elkins.
