Here at Sage Gateshead everyone is welcome
We work really hard to remove barriers and make our building (and everything that happens here) as accessible as possible.
We’re proud to have been awarded Gold by Attitude is Everything on their Charter for Best Practice, and to have won Gold for Inclusive Tourism at the North East England Tourism Awards in 2018.
On this page you’ll find information about our accessible facilities and events and how to join our Access Requirement Register.
If you have any questions, you can contact our Box Office team on [email protected] or 0191 443 4661.
We’re a friendly bunch, and would love to hear from you ahead of your visit if you have any specific access requirements. We’re also very happy to arrange short familiarisation visits to help anyone not familiar with our building to get acquainted.
It’s good to know that:
- Our Box Office, toilets, performance spaces, cafe, Brasserie and bars are accessible to all.
- We’re served by excellent public transport links and have step-free access.
- We have our own car park with lift access situated directly behind the building, and also have a number of priority spaces for blue badge holders near the entrances to Sage Gateshead as well as in our car park.
- Unisex baby changing facilities are available on every level of the building.
- Chestfeeding and breastfeeding parents are very welcome – in our cafe, the concourse or wherever you are most comfortable.
- We are a dog friendly venue. Dogs are welcome in the public areas of the building where our staff will be happy to point out dog-water stations. Only assistance dogs are permitted in our performance spaces.
Access Requirement Register
If you are D/deaf or disabled and have a specific access requirement, our Access Requirement Register (ARR) helps us find the best available seats for you quickly and easily, and get a free ticket for a Personal Assistant.
Our Programme & Events
We programme a number of relaxed performances throughout the year. During these performances we:
- Keep the house lights on during the show
- Keep the hall doors open so people can come and go as they please
- Warn of any loud noises
- Don’t include intervals which can often confuse some audience members
- Provide a chill out room near to the hall
