Disabled Access Day 2017  – Friday 10 March

Disabled Access Day began as a day for individuals, charities, venues and large organisations to celebrate good access and create opportunities for people to try something new. The day is about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists and help raise awareness of accessible ambitions for the future.

Access at St George’s Bristol

St George’s is a listed Georgian building, dating from 1823. We welcome customers with additional needs and there is a dedicated accessible entrance from Charlotte Street (via two external lifts) and a lift in the stalls foyer providing access to St George’s bar, as well as a lift to the stage for artists. Please be aware that access to the galleries is currently by stairs only.
