There is easy access to the Theatre via the glass door on Westgate, to the right of the Victorian Theatre building.

We have power-assisted doors with push buttons inside and outside the glass door at this entrance.

You can use the accessible entrance for shows in both the Walker Studio and the Matcham Auditorium, to get to our daytime Box Office when buying tickets, or for visiting our café bar.

Both the Matcham Auditorium and the Walker Studio have accessible toilet facilities with ramped access.

When buying tickets during the day or drinks and snacks at our café bar, we have a counter which is low enough for wheelchair users to use easily.

Wheelchair Spaces

Our larger space, the Matcham Auditorium, has eight wheelchair spaces in the Stalls (ground floor). There are lots of wheelchair spaces in the Walker Studio, which we use for smaller shows, workshops and events.

Wheelchair spaces are not available in the Dress Circle or the Upper Circle of the Matcham Auditorium as these areas can only be accessed via the stairs and Theatre Royal Wakefield currently has no lift.

Induction Loop

An induction loop system is installed in our Matcham Auditorium for hearing aid users. Please ask a member of staff when you get here if you would like some help using this.
