Harlow Playhouse



Access comes in many forms which is why we’ve created these handy symbols to help:

Relaxed Performances

We are occasionally able to offer relaxed performances for audiences not ordinarily comfortable in a formal theatre setting, such as patrons with learning disabilities, Down’s Syndrome, Autism, or sensory and communication difficulties. Please enquire at Box Office for more details.

Mobility Access

For visitors with mobility problems we provide an entry ramp, automatic doors, lifts and a disabled users’ toilet. Please note that lifts are suitable for wheelchairs, not for mobility scooters. We can safely accommodate eight standard sized wheelchairs within the Main Auditorium, and two wheelchairs within the Studio Theatre. Please ask the Box Office when booking, and arrive a minimum of fifteen minutes prior to curtain-up.

Essential Companion Membership

We offer Essential Companion Membership to patrons who rely on assistance from carers when visiting the theatre. Registered patrons purchasing a ticket for an event will benefit from an accompanying complimentary ticket for their carer. Application forms are available from the Box Office.
