Accessibility at the park in 2023

Access at the park in 2023

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is accessible with no steps leading to the site and has accessible toilets on-site – but please do bear in mind that whilst there are concrete pathways at the park, the theatre auditorium is located on grass and you will need to travel over a small area of grass to reach it.

There will be plenty of team members welcoming audiences on site for any help or guidance you might need.

If you have any extra requirements, please let us know by emailing
Free Essential Companion tickets are available – click here for more information.


Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is open-air, in-the-round and has unreserved seating in wide bench-style tiered terrace seating (called ‘Picnic Terraces’ and ‘Covered and Premium Picnic Terraces’) plus ‘Picnic Chairs’ which are deckchairs at ground level. Find more information about seating here.

If you are a wheelchair user, you can book a Picnic Terrace ticket and transfer from your wheelchair to the Picnic Terrace or if you prefer, you can remain in your wheelchair and sit at ground level in the Picnic Chair area. Covered and Premium areas have steps up to them so are not accessible unless you are comfortable transferring from a wheelchair up several steps to your seat. There is a handrail.

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre performances are more relaxed and informal than traditional theatre environments, and are well-suited to audiences who attend Relaxed Performances elsewhere. This also benefits young children, as they are able to move around and do not have to be silent. Prams cannot be taken into the Theatre, but can be left in the Pram Park.


The nearest car park with disabled parking spots is NCP at Pepper Street (follow the AA Road signs for parking and Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.)
