Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sensible shoes for walking the streets and uneven surfaces in buildings and courtyards.



Due to the nature of the performance, walking between performance sites is necessary. Please be aware that some areas will have uneven floors. The historical nature of the Jewellery Quarter buildings also means that some may find areas not easily accessible.

If you are a wheelchair user, the vast majority of the performance route will be accessible, but there might be an occasion where the show goes into an inaccessible area for a few minutes.

The Hive is fully accessible. Detailed access information HERE.
