Access is via stairs at the front of the building. The stairs are well lit and in good condition. Seven steps down, turn 90deg, then two more steps to gain access. Staff are always available to assist, however advance notice is appreciated - email [email protected] or by phone on 0131 558 7272. Level access to backstage loo. We are happy to book a free of charge carer’s ticket and to provide a queue jumping service so you can get in before the rest of the audience if you wish. Due to fire regulations we can only have one wheelchair user in the premises at any time.
Unfortunately The Stand Comedy Club in Glasgow is in the basement of a listed building, and there is a reasonably steep flight of 15 stairs down to the entrance. The staircase is approx. 4Ft wide and has handrails on both sides. The turning circle is 4ft x 4ft at the bottom of the stairs into the club. Once inside, the venue is all on one level, with one disabled access cubicle in each of the ladies and gents toilets. The venue does offer assistance on the stairs into the club, but we are aware that this is not always suitable. With prior warning we can lift a chair and user down and back up the stairs, although would ask that patrons bring as light a chair as possible. We will endeavour to help anyone with requirements covered by the DDA, but please contact us in advance to discuss by email on [email protected] or by phone on 0141 212 3389. We are happy to book a free of charge carer’s ticket. Due to fire regulations we can only have one wheelchair user in the premises at any time.
Access to The Stand Comedy Club Newcastle is through our main entrance on High Bridge. The street has a footpath in fair condition and the road is cobbled. We have liaised with Newcastle City Council and installed a purpose-built fully accessible hydraulic lift to allow access to the venue. Customers wishing to access the lift will come through our cafe/bistro and into the courtyard where the lift is situated. This is covered by a weather proof canopy ensuring that anyone using it is kept dry and comfortable.
The lift is designed to hold two persons so if assistance is required it can be accommodated. The lift is an Artico 7000, please follow the link for technical data on style and capacity if required. Once downstairs we have a 1/12 ramp installed to allow customers who require wheelchair access to obtain their ticket from the box office and enter or exit the venue easily. We would be more than happy to provide additional information on any access issues if required. Please contact 0191 300 9700 or email [email protected] for any additional information.
