Wheelchair access: Due to unforeseen circumstances we no longer have a ramp for wheelchair access to our venue. The ramp we have for the single step to our front door has been stolen (hopefully by accident). We are looking into ways to make our venue wheelchair accessible asap as we save to buy another ramp but currently haven't found the right solution.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We are very sad our ramp has gone. :(
We are committed to making our spaces open to as many people as we possibly can. Knowing what facilities we have and what the journey around the space is like might make it easier for you to visit us so we hope you find this page useful.
CLAY's Address: 1-2 Regent Street, Leeds, LS2 7QA.
It has a single step access to a single door that opens into the venue. The door is 32 inches wide. We have a metal ramp for the step; front of house staff will put this out upon request.
We have 2 gender-neutral toilets that are down a flight of stairs that is 12 steps. Unfortunately, there is no lift in our building. The rest of the building is on one floor. Wherever possible, with our limited budgets, we hire in an accessible toilet (portaloo).
We have Access tickets available which include a Carer/Companion seat – see our ticket prices on our events pages.
We do not currently have facilities for hearing loops, BSL or captioned performances, but all videos and films that we publicise as CLAY are captioned.
We always have a first aider on site at all our events.
Unless stated otherwise all performances here are relaxed so if you need to get up and move, stand, leave the space, go to the toilets or get some fresh air, you are welcome to do so.
We often programme performances and events outside of our venue and whenever the information is available to us, accessibility information for these events will accompany the events listing.
Content information is included on event listings so that you can make informed choices.
All pages on our website are compatible with Read Aloud and Google Translate browser add ons.
