The Mayor of Guildford’s Access Awards WINNERS 2013 & 2017
At GSC we believe that the experience of live theatre should be accessible to everyone.
Being a site-responsive theatre company means that we use fabulously unique, non-theatre venues, (such as churches, gardens, castles, fields, etc.), to create exciting theatre experiences. However by their nature, age or original use, they may not have been intended for theatre performances and their audiences.
Nevertheless we will always seek to ensure our productions are as accessible, and as welcoming, as possible. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact us
Specific details for the current production are below.
ROMEO & JULIET Holy Trinity Church, High Street, Guildford, GU3 1RR
Holy Trinity Church is fully accessible.
GSC cannot guarantee accessible parking spaces but there is limited free parking on the High Street outside the venue as well as designated spaces at Castle Street Car Park (5 mins walk).
Please call the Box Office should you have any further questions on 01483 304384

Show specific information will be posted here. There is no Relaxed Performance for Romeo & Juliet
A relaxed performance is open to everyone and is intended specifically to be sensitive to and accepting of audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, anyone with sensory and communication disorders or learning disabled people. Babes-in-arms and small children are also welcome. This means that there is a more casual approach to front-of-house etiquette and we ask audience members to be aware of people's needs to move or make involuntary noise. If you have any questions please email us
