- Wind in the Willows (28 Dec 2017)
The main auditorium is fitted with an infra-red system, which is accessible to both audiences and performers. This system requires the user to obtain a headset or hearing aid necklace from the Box Office prior to the event. If you're unsure how the devices work, please ask a member of staff. The infra-red system is available during any of our events, in addition to any other access performances listed above.
The Albany Theatre hosts a wide range of events, some of which might not be suitable for everyone. This could include bad language, scenes of an adult nature or violence. All of our events come with an Age Guidance rating on our web pages and online.
If you are unsure at the time of booking, please contact one of our Box Office Team who will be able to advise you further.
When a performance is suitable for all and young children might be attending, we have a limited number of booster seats available but if your child has a car seat feel free to bring it in. You will also need to purchase a Lap Ticket from the Box Office on the night.
See Families for more information.
Patrons who may not be able to attend the theatre unaccompanied or require a Wheelchair space are entitled to one free companion ticket. These must be booked through the Box Office.
Toilet facilities suitable for wheelchair users and patrons with limited mobility are available on the ground floor, opposite the Box Office.
