Access Pass Focus Groups

What is the Access Pass?

The Access Pass is our new access ticketing scheme, designed to improve the booking experience for D/deaf and disabled audience members.

The Access Pass will allow customers to book specific tickets and events online for the first time. These include:

  • Booking a wheelchair space
  • Booking an essential companion ticket
  • Booking a priority viewing seat for BSL interpreted performances
  • Booking a ticket for a touch tour, which complement our audio described performances
  • Booking a ticket for a Deaf Theatre Club event, which complement our BSL interpreted performances

Why are we running focus groups?

In order to make the Access Pass as beneficial as possible, we are running focus groups for audience members with specific access needs to help shape this new ticketing scheme.

Who would we like to take part?

We are looking for customers past, present and future who are interested in attending performances that have accessible provisions, or who book wheelchair spaces or essential companion tickets.
