The Majestic Theatre is a beautifully restored theatre space which utilises the upper circle of the once huge Majestic Theatre. The Theatre itself has 280 seats all of which have a perfect view of the stage (there reallly isnt a bad seat in the house). Our rennovation has cost thousands of pounds and has taken a lot of work from the team here. However, we are not finished yet. While building work was carried out, we also had surveys done to allow for disabled or step-free access. Due to the building's multiple changes over the years , as well as it's age, it has been almost impossible to find a location that would allow for a lift to be fitted. However, we are determined to make our theatre space as accessable as possible. 

We plan to have a stairlift fitted to the stage door entrance staircase, allowing access directly to the theatre. We also plan to have ramps fitted to the lower levels of the building so that there is access to the disabled toilets. We realised that this isnt full access, but we hope that it is a step in the right direction.
