The coaches unfortunately do not have wheelchair lifts or seats. The coach drivers are able to assist with folding and stowing a wheelchair on board the coach, but students must be able to board the coach themselves.

The venue manages the accessibility needs of visitors through the Nimbus Card scheme, students needing accessibility support during the trip should apply for a new card or to link their existing card to the venue at least 7 days prior to the visit (by 16th September). We are attending on a Saturday, so it is highly likely you will encounter large crowds of people and excessive noise. If you have any questions around access or have specific access requirements we can accommodate, please get in touch with us by emailing su.reception@bcu.ac.uk.
