ACCESS

The Mayor of Guildford’s Access Awards WINNERS 2013 & 2017

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 below, please contact us


ALICE IN WONDERLAND - starting at St Mary's Church

Starts: Quarry Street, Guildford, GU1 3UA

Ends: Guildford Castle Keep, Castle St, Guildford, GU1 3SX

See Directions for maps

This is a promenade performance, visiting different venues; therefore part of the action will take place outside as you move between properties.

GSC regret that due to the limitations of the venues, Alice in Wonderland is not suitable for wheelchair users. Those with limited mobility, please call the Box Office with regards to any specific requirements and we will do a very best to accommodate you.

In addition to St Mary's Church, our other venues are Guildford Museum and Guildford Castle Keep. Click on the these venues for their own access details.

St Mary's Church is accessible from the street but there are 5 shallow steps from the nave to the tower, and then 3 steps to the alter.

The full route is approx. 500 yards and will involve some steps and steep paths.

Please call the Box Office should you have any further questions or requirements on 01483 304384

Relaxed Performances

Alice in Wonderland Tuesday 30 October 6.30pm

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
