Accessible Screenings

As part of The Great Northern Creative Expo, we offer a variety of accessible screenings and Q&As. As part of the Expo’s inclusivity pledge, all events can be presented suitable for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, with our screenings appearing with subtitles and film introductions and Q&A sessions being BSL interpreted upon prior request.

Toilet facilities are accessible on all levels.

Guide dogs and assistance dogs are very welcome to attend events with you.

Wheelchair Access

Please see our venues page for access facilities at each location.

Reserved Seating

We do not offer reserved seating for the Expo as a rule, however, if you require particular seating in order to accommodate any access needs, such as for mobility needs, sight or hearing needs, or any other needs to make your viewing experience more comfortable, please let us know. You can let us know either in advance or when you arrive. We will arrange for the appropriate seating to be held for you for each screening or event you attend.

Please let us know in advance if you are a wheelchair user or are booking on behalf of a wheelchair user so that we can adjust our capacity and ensure the space is reserved.

If you require the use of a space for prayer or other devotion, the Oasis Faith and Spirituality Centre is located very near to the Media Factory. Please get in touch and we can help arrange access to this space.
