We are delighted to announce that the Academy 1 now has a purpose built first floor viewing gallery and bar which can be accessed by our disabled guests. If you are attending a future show at the Academy 1 please telephone 0161 275 2930 to pre register to access this facility.
Academy 2, 3 and Club Academy are currently standing only venues and we do not have purpose built disabled viewing provision. We will however try to accommodate our disabled guests with chairs/raised viewing where possible. We will also attempt to facilitate an appropriate location from where you can fully enjoy the gig. Please be aware that no arrangements can be guaranteed in advance. Please telephone 0161 275 2930 in advance of the show date to inform us of your needs and requirements.
