Disabled patrons

Burnley Mechanics welcomes people with disabilities. Assistant Dogs are welcome and water can be provided. A Textphone service is also available on 01282 425011. The Fire Authorities advise that all wheelchair patrons remain in their wheelchairs throughout the performance as transferring to a regular seat is not recommended. Able bodied companions will be requested to assist should an emergency evacuation arise.  If you use a wheelchair it is vitally important that you inform the Box Office at time of booking as our licensing regulations allow for two wheelchair users per event. Wheelchair spaces are situated on A row of the front stalls. Burnley Mechanics operate a free ticket for essential carer’s policy. Please check with Box Office for details, conditions apply.

Babes in arms and young children

All theatre performances are not recommended for children under 2 years of age. The management reserves the right to ask parents to remove children if, in the management’s opinion, they are causing a disturbance.

Access

There is a ramp at the Manchester Road entrance and two lifts one from ground floor level and one from Foyer level to the Auditorium and the Tudor room. Please call the box office to arrange assistance prior to your visit.  There is a very small gradient from the car park to the theatre entrance on York street, if you believe this will be a problem please call the box office to arrange assistance from car park level.

Accessibility inside the building

Our front room, lounge bar, theatre bar, loft and basement studio are completely accessible for visitors with disabilities. A lift to the first and second floor can be accessed via the lounge bar. The Basement studio has its own access at the back of the building.
With the need to evacuate using the goods lift and/or an evacuation chair in an emergency we can accommodate up to 2 wheelchair patrons in the main auditorium/theatre bar and 1 wheelchair patron in the loft.  This is directly informed by our risk assessment and agreed fire evacuation procedure that details our duty of care to both our patrons and staff.  We are able to be more flexible in the front room, lounge bar and basement studio because of the exit onto the street.
Any patron requiring an essential companion to attend the theatre to ensure their safe exit in an emergency evacuation needs to be incorporated into the fire risk assessment therefore up to four spaces will be allocated (in addition to the wheelchair allocation) next to the wheel chair spaces both in the theatre and loft.

Lift

A passenger lift is available from Foyer level to the Theatre and The Loft.  maximum capacity 8 persons.
Please note Burnley Mechanics is an old building and the lift can only accommodate one wheelchair patron and carer at any one time.

Toilets

Radar key operated toilets for customers with disabilities are located on all three floors and baby-changing facilities are available in the lower foyer.

Hard of hearing

There is an induction loop system in the main theatre: put your hearing aid on T switch. It works best in the tier using seats 20-23 on rows F-T, and in the stalls using seats 22-25 on rows C-E. The next best areas are seats 1-5 (tier and stalls) on the other side of the theatre. Seats in the centre section should not be used.
