Accessibility for the disabled
All the National Theatre venues are accessible to disabled persons, with special seats allocated for them in the auditorium. It is, however, advisable to consult each visit in advance with the National Theatre Sales Department.
How to purchase tickets?
Should you be interested in attending a performance at one of our venues in a wheelchair, please contact us as soon as possible. The number of seats allocated for persons in wheelchairs is limited at all our venues. Please do not book other seats in the auditorium yourself. Should you opt to receive tickets on delivery or by certified mail, you have to purchase them no later than 2 weeks prior to the selected performance.
How to purchase a subscription?
Disabled persons can buy a subscription for all National Theatre venues. Subscriptions are on sale twice during the season – the full-season subscription in the spring and the Christmas subscription in the autumn. Persons in wheelchairs are advised to consult purchasing of subscriptions with the subscription department.
It is therefore recommended that a visit to the theatre by such a person be announced in advance when purchasing a ticket.
