Are you still doing table service?
No, we are returning to self-service for drinks and food orders. You can place your order for food and drinks at the bar inside.
Pizzas from Donna Italia take just 3 minutes to cook (wow!) and so we will kindly ask you to wait at the bar whilst your lovely fresh pizza is prepared.
Please note that the bar can be busy at peak times, but if you are patient with us, we’ll serve with a smile and will work as quickly as we can to serve you.
What toilet facilities do you have?
Toilets are just inside the theatre building and there are fully accessible toilets available.
We are proud to share that our toilets now have free sanitary product dispensers from Aunt Flow. Find out more about Aunt Flow's mission to ensure that everyone has access to period products here.
What happens if it rains or the weather is bad?
Well we’re Northern so we don’t shy away from a bit of rain! The benches are covered with umbrellas to keep you as dry as possible and we encourage you to come with jackets so we can all keep enjoying the music whatever the weather.
Extreme weather conditions are monitored and individual decisions made closer to the time.
Is this event accessible for those with additional access requirements?
Yes - our courtyard is fully accessible for wheelchair users via a ramp into our theatre and bar area and we have accessible toilets located inside.
