Access & facilities

Bridport Arts Centre wants to ensure you have an enjoyable visit and we are committed to offering an accessible and welcoming environment for our guests. As a Grade II listed building there are some adaptations we have not yet been able to make to ensure all part of our premises are fully accessible. We are working to improve this all the time.

We hope that this page offers you the information you need to enjoy your time with us. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve or can’t see the information you need, please email [email protected] or call 01308 427183

Disabled Parking & Dropping Off

Bridport Arts Centre does not have any on site parking. All nearby car parks have disabled parking bays – see Find Us for more information. There is also a disabled parking bay to the front and right of the building on South Street and a dropping off area.

Box Office

The box office has an accessible height counter and is fitted with an infrared hearing system.

Level Access areas

The bar, café area, all toilets and the theatre are all level access and accessed from the ground floor.


The Accessible Toilet is located on the ground floor near the café and incorporates a baby change unit.  Toilets are now unisex.

Allsop Gallery

The Allsop Gallery is accessed by stairs or by a platform lift. Staff on site will assist you in using this safely during your visit.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome in all our spaces, including the theatre and gallery. We would be happy to provide water for your dog, please ask a member of staff, or gallery steward.

Carer or Personal Assistant

We offer a complimentary ticket to a carer or support worker enabling your attendance at an event. Please request this ticket when booking your own.

Assistive Listening Device

We have a system to support hard of hearing visitors. Pendants that will enhance the sound of an event can be collected from a Theatre steward when arriving for a performance. These will be issued on a first come first served basis.
