Venue Access

Leeds City Council aims to provide an accessible and inclusive facility for all events taking place in the Carriageworks Theatre.

The main entrance to the theatre is situated on Millennium Square within The Electric Press. You will find our ticket office, Leeds Ticket Hub, here on the ground floor. From the entrance on Great George Street, through The Electric Press Courtyard, there are 6 steps to the ground floor ticket office and a lift to all levels.

Lift access is available to all levels: -1, Ground Floor and Levels 1 – 4.

An accessible (M/F) toilet with baby change facilities is available on levels 1,2,3 & 4 

Bars on Level 1 and Level 2 are open to visitors prior to and during performances.

The Main Auditorium has eleven wheelchair spaces available on Level 1.
