There is access for buggies to the building, but they are not permitted inside either the Main House or the Studio. There is storage space in the foyer; owners leave buggies unattended at their own risk.
Children under the age of two will only be admitted to shows featuring the Family Friendly logo.

We suggest that families with small children consider sitting at the end of a row. This will allow you to leave the auditorium easily if necessary.
Colouring activities are available in the foyer should your child like to leave the show. Children must be supervised at all times.

All staff members are identifiable by badges and are happy to help with any enquiry.
