The Meeting Room is fully wheelchair accessible. The path from the main entrance on Ashley St has three steps, but there is a side entrance (gate) reached via the Lane that is ramped and fully accessible. If you require disabled access we recommend getting in touch with us in advance so that we can make sure that the event organiser knows to open up the side entrance. The inside of the building is all on one level and has a wheelchair-accessible toilet.
