Horse + Bamboo is a wheelchair accessible venue.  Entrance, theatre & toilets are all ground floor. 

If you need a wheelchair seat reserving for any performance – you can let us know during the online booking process.

If you have any questions about accessibility or any specific access needs, please contact us on : | 01706 220 241



There is free street parking to the front and rear of the building.  The building can be accessed from front or via the back garden during performance times.  Both entrances are ground level and there are no steps.



We put an age to our family performances as a guide but appreciate that many families have older or younger siblings and we welcome them to attend even if performance isn’t advertised for their age group (unless we have stated that the content is not suitable for a younger audience).

Horse + Bamboo is a relaxed venue.  For all of our shows we take a relaxed approach to noise and movement in our theatre.  Our audience are free to come and go from the theatre space during a performance as they need to.  Whilst our lights will dim – we do not do ‘complete black outs’ in our theatre – so that our seating bank, entrance and exit points in the theatre are always visible.

We know that this might be your child’s first theatre experiences and that every child reacts differently.  We have a space where you can leave the theatre to play and read until you’re feeling brave enough to go back in.


We welcome mothers who wish to breast feed in the café but can also provide a space should you want privacy.  We have baby changing facilities within the ladies toilets as well as within our unisex accessible toilets.


Our doors open 1 hour before every family event for a free making activity which links to the performance you are about to enjoy.  This is a great opportunity for children to explore different ways of making as well as something to take home from the day.


Should a performance coincide with time for prayers we are more than happy to provide a private room just before or just after the show.  Please ask a member of the Horse + Bamboo team who will happily help.
