Metronome building


Metronome has been designed with disabled access in mind and level access is possible for all patrons that use mobility aids. If you would like to talk to someone further about specifics for our venue please contact [email protected]. If you would prefer to speak to someone in person, please contact our Operations Manager on 07717662027. We can also be contacted via our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter)

Access is provided via a ramp on entry. We offer free essential companion tickets to any patrons that require one.

Seating can be provided on request and Access Card holders with difficulty standing and queuing can get in touch to arrange early entry.

Due to the layout of the venue we can accommodate wheelchair users in the main auditorium in the following ways:

Seated Shows

At seated shows, we are able to adjust the seating in the first 3 rows to allow wheelchair users an excellent vantage point and allow partners/companions to sit next to the wheelchair users.

We kindly ask anyone attending in a wheelchair to let us know when booking – or before the event – that you will require space for your wheelchair in the venue so that the seating can be set up correctly in advance.

Standing Shows

Standing gigs offer accessibility for disabled patrons – and their companions – in our mezzanine. We will always do our best to accommodate individual requirements, and other viewing options may be available at standing gigs following a risk assessment of the event.

The six available spaces in the mezzanine are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis upon booking, and access to the mezzanine is via an elevator.

We kindly ask that anyone looking to use this facility let us know when booking and make themselves known to reception staff on arrival. Our staff will take you to the mezzanine and offer assistance throughout the evening as and when required.

If you would like to talk to someone further about specifics for our venue please email [email protected] and we will endeavour to answer all your queries. We are constantly working to improve the visitor experience so please let us know of anything you feel we could do better.

There is a purpose built disabled toilet accessed from the lobby area via level flooring. The disabled toilet is easily accessible from the auditorium, bar or reception. It is approximately 20m from the venue and the mezzanine. It is kept locked with a Radar key, which is available from reception or the bar.

“What a brilliant venue! Modern, clean, comfortable and welcoming, with amazing sound quality, it was a real pleasure to visit Metronome for a gig. I am a disabled person and contacted the venue in advance to ask if it might be possible to have somewhere to sit for the duration of the show. The staff at Metronome could not have been more helpful or kind or understanding. They anticipated my needs and made me feel so relaxed and safe. I would not have been able to attend the gig had it not been for their help so I am extremely grateful to them, as I was able to enjoy a thoroughly great evening. Thank you very much indeed.” – Cat S
