About Gala Theatre


The Gala is fully accessible throughout.

There is easy access to the auditorium with lifts to the upper levels. Accessible toilets are located throughout the building. If you are a wheelchair user advise the Box Office when reserving your tickets to ensure seats are allocated accordingly. Wheelchair places are situated in the Stalls and Circle - we request disabled patrons have an able bodied companion, whose ticket is free.

We operate the Sennheiser infra red amplification system. Headsets are available at the Box Office. Guide Dogs and other working dogs are welcome in all parts of the theatre.
