Sign Language is a visual means of communicating using gestures, facial expression and body language. Within Britain the most common form of Sign Language is called British Sign Language (BSL).

We have induction loop systems throughout the main auditorium, in the Palace Studio, in our Box Office and our Bar. Please select the T position on your hearing devices to access these services.
Babies & Children
The Theatre strongly advises no admission for children under three, except for productions as advised by a ticket sales assistant. We consider Pantomime to be suitable for ages 3 plus and most ballets for 5 plus. In accordance with licensing requirements every person entering the auditorium must be in possession of a valid ticket. Baby changing facilities are available in a room located next to the Ladies toilets on the ground floor.
The theatre has lift access to all front of house areas including the bar, the Palace Studio and main auditorium. Wheelchair users have easy access via automatic doors from our main entrance on Alcester Street. Wheelchair positions are located in most areas of the auditorium and positions available in the Palace Studio.
There are 10 wheelchair spaces in the Auditorium, 8 in the stalls and 2 in the circle. There are 420 seats in the Palace Theatre, Redditch.
Customers who require wheelchairs as their primary use of mobility, must book a wheelchair seating position on the allocated seats on the booking plan by calling Box Office on 01527 65203. Wheelchair users for safety and evacuation reasons must not be transferred from a wheelchair to a fixed seat and must remain in their wheelchair to enable safe evacuation of the Theatre.
Please Note: If a patron is unable to attend in a wheelchair and needs to use an electric scooter instead, please notify the Box Office as spaces to accommodate them are limited and subject to space availability. Scooter users for safety and evacuation reasons must not be transferred from a scooter to a fixed seat and must remain in their scooter to enable safe evacuation of the Theatre.
We have a number of disabled parking spaces directly opposite the theatre in the entrance to Hughes car park. Please be aware however that parking is limited during the day to 1 and a half hours if you overstay this time you will incur a fine as this is a private car park. You may park there after 6pm 7 days a week. Accessible unisex and ambulant disabled toilets are available on all levels. Our Box Office and bar facilities are equipped with low level counters to aid access
We give 1 free ticket for the assistant of a disabled person who is unable to attend events unaccompanied where companies permit this. The free carer ticket is subject to the disabled patron's acceptance onto the Redditch Palace Theatre's Access and Carer Scheme.
