We have a limited number of wheelchair accessible seats in the theatre, which can be booked by selecting the relevant option when buying tickets, or speaking to our box office team. Wheelchairs are accommodated by removing two standard seats from the auditorium, so we need you to book two tickets to ensure the second seat is reserved. You will only need to pay for one ticket per person.


There are wheelchair ramps to enter and exit the auditorium via the double fire doors at the front. We regret that there is no wheelchair accessible toilet available in the theatre or the Red Lion Pub at this time, and the pub (a grade II listed building) is not wheelchair accessible.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome at the Lion Theatre. You can take your dog into the auditorium with you, but we advise you speak to staff about best options for seating with space.  Bowls of water are available if required. Please advise us of your needs when booking.

Hearing Enhancement

We have an induction loop in our auditorium. This is suitable for use with both analogue and digital hearing aids. To use this, please adjust your hearing aid to the ‘T’ setting.  Please note that this may not be available during live music performances.

Familiarisation Visits

We offer special tours of the Theatre to anyone who would benefit from them.  This is aimed at people who may find a first visit to an unknown location stressful.  Please contact us to arrange.

Other Needs

If you have special requirements which are not in this list, we will make every effort to assist you. Please contact us to discuss how we can help.
