We want everything we do to be accessible to all our audiences, and are looking for ways to break down barriers so more people can enjoy theatre at its best.

The short taster films below give you a taster of what we can offer.

There are disabled parking bays opposite the theatre and in the surrounding streets. For a map of disabled parking in Stratford-upon-Avon visit the Accessible Stratford-upon-Avon website.

Accessible theatre

We want as many people as possible to experience theatre at its best at the RSC. As well as having wheelchair and transfer seats for all our shows, we keep front row seats free for people who have difficulties seeing or hearing, and we run assisted performances for all our shows

Exhibitions and Events

We run regular events and exhibitions throughout our theatres. If you're not sure whether you can come or take part, then please get in touchand we'll do our best to make it happen. Find out about access to our permanent exhibition The Play's the Thing.
