The only parking available is on street - please plan your journeys to ensure you will have enough time to find a suitable parking spot. Disabled Badge Holders may park their vehicles on the double yellow lines in front of the theatre.


Coach Parking

Coaches may pull up on the double yellow lines in front of the theatre to allow passengers to disembark. Once clear of passengers they must relocate to Parry's Lane on the Downs where there is parking for up to 15 coaches. 


Due to the tiered nature of the seating the main access to the auditorium is via two staircases, however ground level access to the front of the auditorium is available via the side door to the left of the building. Access to Row A is the only row that doesn't require any steps. Access to the theatre foyer also requires traversing a single step - a portable ramp is available if required. Unfortunately the theatre does not have a disabled toilet or an Induction Loop at this time.

If you have specific access requirements please let the Box Office know when booking your tickets and make yourself known to a member of Redgrave staff upon arrival at the venue for your chosen event.
