The Black Box is an inclusive venue and we welcome D/deaf and disabled customers to the venue
The Black Box has step-free access throughout the whole building from the street and has fitted accessible push button automatic doors
The Black Box offers a PA ticket for their own events at no additional cost for customers who require support to be able to attend our venue. Please get in touch if you would like to
arrange this for one of our own shows. For outside promoters that are hiring the venue we recommend, they also provide free PA tickets for their event. They may need to be contacted directly to arrange this.
We do not have a set viewing area, but before your visit here please ring us and we can reserve a space for you. Upon your arrival, please make yourself known, and our staff will be more than happy for you to find a place for you to position yourself for the show.

We also have ear plugs available behind the bars in the venue for those who need them- just ask a member of staff when you are here
We welcome assistance dogs into the venue. If you plan on bringing one with you, please do let us know in advance
Occasionally some of our events here would use strobe lighting. Events using strobe lighting will have this warning in the description online and warning signs would be put up around the venue. If you have any concerns, please let us know.
Our dressing room for performers is located on ground level across from accessible toilet facilities.
We also have a portable ramp that can be attached to the stage for any performers that require it.
