RELEVANT INFORMATION FROM 229’S ACCESS POLICY

229 promotes equality of opportunity for people with disabilities and we are proud to work with Attitude is Everything undertaking the necessary steps to meet their requirements.

Getting inside the venue
There is a doorway which gives you access to a lift which can take you into the basement venue. Please make yourself known to security at the venue entrance and they will arrange for you to be escorted into the premises. Anyone with a disability will be offered priority entry (queue jumping!)

Accessible toilet and bar
We have disabled toilets for both Venue 1 and Venue 2 on the same level as the main viewing areas. The bars are also on the same level.

Smoking
The smoking area is upstairs on the ground floor at the main entrance. If a person using a wheelchair wants to go outside to smoke, please notify a member of security or other staff member and arrangements will be made to use the lift back to ground floor level.

Evacuation policy
All our security, stewards and porters are trained to know how to assist disabled customers in case of emergency. We ask that anyone in a wheelchair returns to the lift lobby area with their carer where they will be assisted and lifted up to ground floor level or alternatively directed to a designated ‘Safe Area’.
