Accessibility

The Albany Theatre Trust is committed to making sure the Theatre as accessible as possible for everyone.

There are a limited number of seats available for wheelchair users, or patrons with low mobility. They are located at the rear of the auditorium and should be booked via our Box Office.

Seating for the rest of the Theatre, both in the Stalls and Balcony is only accessible via steps and has a good view from all seats. Please contact the Box Office for more information. View our seating plan here.

There are a limited number of Disabled Parking spaces at the front of the Theatre, but please note you must park in a designated space and you must pay for your parking, also displaying your blue badge.

See Getting Here for more information on how to find us and parking.

Hearing Loop

The main auditorium is fitted with an infra-red system, which is accessible to both audiences and performers. This system requires the user to obtain a headset or hearing aid necklace from the Box Office prior to the event. If you’re unsure how the devices work, please ask a member of staff. The infra-red system is available during any of our events, in addition to any other access performances listed above.

Age Guidance

The Albany Theatre hosts a wide range of events, some of which might not be suitable for everyone. This could include bad language, scenes of an adult nature or violence. All of our events come with an Age Guidance rating on our web pages and online.

If you are unsure at the time of booking, please contact one of our Box Office Team who will be able to advise you further.

When a performance is suitable for all and young children might be attending, we have a limited number of booster seats available but if your child has a car seat feel free to bring it in. If your child does not require their own seat you will also need to purchase a Lap Ticket from the Box Office.

See Families for more information.

Companion Tickets

Patrons who may not be able to attend the theatre unaccompanied or require a Wheelchair space are entitled to one free companion ticket. These must be booked through the Box Office and are subject to availability. Please note that we may ask for proof of eligibility in order to allocate this entitlement.

Toilet facilities

Toilet facilities suitable for wheelchair users and patrons with limited mobility are available on the ground floor, just past the studio.

Whilst many public performances have been postponed due to the pandemic, we want to keep our venue flourishing and endeavour to become a new home to many of Coventry's community and social groups.
Immerse yourself in a virtual theatre performance, see everything around you from floor to ceiling. Get the equipment (all you will need to provide is a smartphone) and you're ready.
The team at The Albany Theatre in Coventry is elated to have received the news today (12/10/2020) that they have secured a £250k grant from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. Without the funding, The Albany would have been forced to close at the end of the week, but thanks to the hard work and dedication of all at the theatre, they can now look forward with confidence.
The Albany is pleased to announce that Zarah Sultana, Coventry South’s new MP, has joined the Board of the Charitable Trust that manages Coventry’s Albany Theatre and Studio on behalf of the community.
"We are ready to respond with creativity and enthusiasm as soon as we know it is safe to re-open... Rest assured, as soon as we have any news about The Albany we will let you know, we are ready to play our part in the re-emergence of live theatre."
