Access To The building

There is a steep slope from the street leading to the main entrance and a flight of stairs up to our front door. More level access is possible by approaching from Exeter Central Library on Castle street. Step-free access to the building is available via a ramped entrance on the side of the building.

The side entrance is equipped with automatic doors. The building is equipped with a lift servicing all floors.

Access at Events

Induction loops are in place in our box office / foyer and auditorium.

At standing events, a small seating area is available to reserve for people who have difficulty standing. Please email boxoffice@exeterphoenix.org.uk or call 01392 667080 to find out more.

Parking

There is one accessible parking space for Blue Badge Holders. To reserve this for your visit, please call our box office team on 01392 667080 who will provide you with a parking permit upon arrival.

Toilets

Level access to accessible toilets is available on all floors. Please ask Box Office for the radar key if needed.

Guide Dogs

Guide / Hearing / Assistance Dogs are welcome. If you wish to take your dog into the performance, please let us know when booking your ticket so that we can arrange an adjacent seat.

Companion Tickets

Patrons with disabilities may also bring a companion free of charge to all Exeter Phoenix promoted events, and most externally promoted events taking place in the venue. Please call 01392 667080 or email our box office team to organise this.

Subtitled Screenings

A selection of our films are caption subtitled. Caption subtitling is a service that makes our film programme accessible to our d/Deaf and hearing-impaired customers by displaying additional auditory information on the screen.

Our film programme also contains many films subtitled into English from other languages. These may also be suitable for our Deaf/deaf and hearing-impaired customers, but won't include additional descriptions of sounds.

Audio Described Screenings

Each season, an audio description track will be available for a selection of our films. Audio description is a service for partially sighted or blind people, and is similar to listening to a cricket or football match on the radio – the action is described to you.

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed performances allow people with learning differences and additional needs to enjoy a show without having to worry about moving around, leaving the auditorium, or making a noise. These performances are available for a number of our long-running events, including our annual winter family show. For more information feel free to telephone Anna-Ruth on the number at the top of the page.

Venue Visual Story

In preparation for visiting our venue, we can provide a visual resource for children and young adults on the autistic spectrum or with learning, sensory or communication differences. Download our venue Visual Story here >>
