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 parts 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 424901.
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.
The box office is situated at Bridport Tourist Information Centre, just a few yards away from the Arts Centre, on Bucky Doo Square. Booking can also be done online at www.bridport-arts.com. All bookings generate e-tickets which are scanned on entry to the theatre or gallery space.
The bar and restaurant area, toilets and the theatre are all level and accessible from the ground floor.
All toilets are on the ground floor. The Accessible Toilet incorporates a baby change unit.
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 are welcome in 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.
Please be aware at the time of booking that the front row of the theatre balcony – Row V – has restricted legroom. There is also a central support strut on the floor of that row, which is clearly marked with tape.
