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.
In terms of COVID 19 we are working to keep everyone as safe as possible as we transition back to live events. In order to do this we have some continued rules around infection control and we ask that you familiarise yourself with them before coming to an event. You can read them here.
The space and company is run a by a small team of Queer women and non binary humans.
Jess and Marie are pictured here. At events we are often the people at the box office and behind the bar, as well as a handful of occasional freelance front of house people who all share our ethos and are committed to upholding our code of conduct.
If you have any worries or questions about any activity, including having come to an event by yourself, come and say hello. Whilst we have work to do, part of our job is to make sure you feel safe and comfortable so we'll do what we can to ensure that.
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).
Access tickets available which to include include a Carer/Companion seat, you can purchase a regular ticket and let us know that your carer is coming too.
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.
