At The Leadmill
The Leadmill is a step free venue, all located on ground floor level with easy access for anyone with a disability.
We have 2 disabled access toilets and 3 bars, all on the same level. Priority entry is also available for people with a disability, this means customers are able to enter the venue ahead of any queues once the doors are open.
A wheelchair viewing area is available for our main room shows upon request. As we are not a purpose built venue, this is not a permanent area and therefore it must be booked in advance in order for it to be set up. Due to our capacity, spaces are limited and are first come first served. This area is positioned by the front, right of the stage with easy access to disabled access toilets and one of our bars. To access this viewing area customers must enter through our main doors and follow across the dancefloor to the right hand side towards the side of our stage.
Our day time box office is located above the venue and requires two flights of stairs to access.
Personal Assistant Ticketing Scheme
People with disabilities are entitled to a free personal assistant ticket upon proof of disability, which must be requested in advance. We recommend that customers first purchase their general admission ticket and then email Alex at [email protected] to obtain a free personal assistant ticket.
Examples of accepted proof: Disability Living Allowance (DLA) / Attendance Allowance (AA), Personal Independence Payments (PIPs), Blue Badges & The Access Card. We will review an application without the recommended evidence on a case-by-case basis.
Booking & Ticketing
We do not sell separate tickets for our accessible viewing area or disabled access tickets, only general admission. If you are a wheelchair user and wish to be seated in our wheelchair viewing area, please first purchase a general admission ticket and then contact the venue and we can allocate you a space. Please note this is first come, first served and spaces are limited and we would therefore advise contacting as soon as possible to try and secure a space. Please also note you may be asked to provide proof of access requirements. We cannot provide extra tickets for this area if the show is sold out.
Once tickets have been purchased please email Alex via [email protected] to arrange.
