Watts Gallery UPDATED 29 May 2015
WOODLAND ACCESS FOR WHEELCHAIR USERS
As advertised, part of the action of this production will take place in woodlands, which is accessible by two sets of small steps and a slope.
At GSC we are passionate that our performances should be for everyone. We have been working closely with Watts Gallery to ensure that our performances are wheelchair friendly. However, due to the natural woodland environment, we are struggling to create the level wheelchair access into the woodland that we had hoped to achieve. This is due to the sandy nature of the ground and steep gradient into the woods.
In order that patrons in wheelchairs can still enjoy the full story, there will be a film of the short section in the woods so that any wheelchair patrons can watch the performance on a screen in the main performance area, and then rejoin the audience as they emerge from the woods. This way none of the action will be missed.
We anticipate that the section in the woods will be approximately 20 minutes long. This is the only section of the show that we will struggle to give you full accessibility.
We would also advise against the wearing of high heeled shoes due to the woodland flooring.
GARDENS are fully accessible.
University of Law has full wheelchair access.
Holy Trinity Church has full wheelchair access from High Street and Castle Street (follow signs)
St Mary's Church has full wheelchair access from Quarry Street.
Sonnet Walks: the utmost care is designing the route will be taken to ensure accessibility. Please check with the Box Office in advance
Guildford Castle Gardens have full wheelchair access from Castle Street, though there is one fairly steep slope. There will be a toilet with wheelchair access. There is designated disability parking at Castle Street Car Park.
Guildford Cathedral Grounds are fully accessible and there is designated parking onsite.
Please speak to the Box Office when booking with regards to any specific requirements and we will do a very best to accommodate you.
Hearing and guide dogs are welcome at all performances. Please note that performances can involve loud noises.
We regret we cannot yet provide a hearing induction loop or BSL performances at our productions. We are investigating this for the future.
Audio Described Performances
We regret that due to the promenade style of 2015's productions we are not able to offer an audio described performance.
However, if you do suffer from impaired vision or hearing we may be able to seat you on the front row. Please ask the Box Office when booking.
