Access List Terms and Conditions

The Access List allows customers with access requirements and their companions to purchase ticket(s) at the disabled concessionary rate (subject to availability). It also aims to assist our access customers in booking tickets and helps us to understand their specific needs.

The Access List is open to anyone who is restricted in their ability to access the services provided at The Bridge Theatre. Proof of eligibility is required to join and customers who intentionally give false information will be removed from the Access List. We may review, amend or withdraw the Access List scheme at any time.

By joining the Access List, you agree that any ticket(s) made available at the concessionary rate will only be used by a disabled person (as defined by the Equality Act 2010) and his/her companion. We reserve the right to check proof of eligibility at the theatre and, in the event that valid proof of eligibility is not provided, refuse any such ticketholders admission or ask such ticketholders to leave. We reserve the right to require you to re-apply for the Access List after review and to withdraw membership of the Access List if your eligibility changes,  or if we reasonably suspect that you or your companion(s) are abusing the Access List.

If you wish to book a ticket on behalf of someone who has an access requirement, then you may join the Access List yourself and give details of the requirements for your guest or dependant. If you wish to book on behalf of a group of guests or dependants that have access requirements, please call 0333 320 0051
