    • We offer free access for carers as a reasonable adjustment where disabled people require significant support in accessing our activities. This means carers may go round the activity but would not be taking part.
    • If an essential carer wishes to partake in an activity directly, in addition to supporting guests with access requirements, we ask that they pay to play.
    • However, we appreciate that our activities are sociable so if the booking party consists only of one disabled person and one essential carer, the carer may participate free of charge. To do so, we will ask for supporting evidence on arrival such as an access card or a valid blue badge.
    • Please note that the CEA card only applies to free companion tickets in our cinema as it is a cinema industry membership scheme

    If you have any questions, please give us a call on 01995 676 210 or email and we will be more than happy to help.
