VENUE ACCESS

Our venues are all indoors and take the form of pubs, clubs, theatres and public facilities. This means the facilities on offer will vary, and some venues may be inaccessible to individuals based on this.

The Muni 
The Muni is wheelchair accessible. There is a disabled toilet, disabled lift which allows access from the main hall down to the Lesser hall. Disabled customers, where possible will have priority access. There is no access to the balcony.

Pendle Hippodrome 
Pendle Hippodrome is wheelchair accessible. There is disabled access into the auditorium via the cobbled street up Church Meadows and dedicated wheelchair spaces. We would recommend that you bring a carer with you to help manage access through this traditional street. There are no disabled toilets, however the Town Hall which is located very close to Pendle Hippodrome has disabled toilet facilities and these will be available during Town Hall opening hours.  Backstage facilities are not accessible to disabled performers and staff.

 

The Little Theatre 
Access to The Little Theatre is down a steep hill and involves traversing cobbled streets. We would recommend that you bring a carer with you to help manage access through this traditional street. The Theatre itself is small. Backstage facilities are not accessible to disabled performers and staff.

All of our venues allow assistance dogs, please inform Colne Town Council prior to the event.
