The entry doors are split into a sliding glass door on the left, and two push glass doors on the right. The sliding glass door is operated by a push pad button on the wall to the left.

Almeida Theatre Foyer


As you enter the theatre, the Café and Bar is immediately through the doors to the left and the Box Office is to the right. Next to the Box Office is a ramp which provides access to the toilets and auditorium. There is a limited amount of bench seating that runs along the ramp and back wall.

At the back of the foyer (at the end of the bar) is the Kiosk where programmes and posters can be purchased, as well as headsets collected for those requiring hearing enhancement in the auditorium.

We unfortunately do not have a cloakroom or storage space.

The Almeida Theatre foyer empty. There is a two-story banner for the production of Boy on the back wall. A ramp takes up the right hand side of the foyer, and there are small circular tables on the left side.

Box Office

Tickets are able to be collected from the Box Office which has a desk height of 91cm. Disabled customers may also ask to use the Box Office phone to arrange a pick up or call a taxi.

Foyer Ramp


The foyer ramp is in two sections: the first section has a 13:1 gradient, and the second section has a 17:1 gradient. The ramp’s first section provides access to the toilets (including the accessible toilet), and the second section leads to the auditorium stalls entrance.

Alternatively, there are six steps to the stalls entrance, which are divided into two sections: the first section has two steps, then turning left there are four more steps to the auditorium door on your right. Unfortunately we do not have a lift.

The toilets are situated at the back of the foyer (to the left) and can be accessed via the ramp or steps. There is one accessible toilet for the priority of disabled audiences.

In addition, there are handles in each of the end cubicles in the ladies, the cubicle farthest from the door is wider and the door opens outward. There are no toilets in the circle.
