You may be aware that some work has recently been undertaken on the area around the front entrance to the ICC and Symphony Hall. The purpose of this work is to create a safer and more secure area for customers and visitors. From 1 April 2010 it will no longer be possible to drop people off directly outside the entrance (via King Alfred Place). Instead, the drop-off point will be on Cambridge Street, near to the mini roundabout. Staff will be available there to assist Symphony Hall patrons into the building if necessary. Groups arriving by coach will only be allowed access onto King Alfred Place (KAP) if they have provided details in advance of their coach company to the Box Office. Taxis will not be permitted access.
If you have a disability you are entitled to receive 50% discount off full price seats. Should you need the service of a companion, their ticket is also half price. Proof of eligibility may be required. NB Disabled patrons can combine their 50% discount with the additional Concert Package discounts. For further information on facilities for patrons with disabilities, including the infra-red system for the hearing impaired, please contact Symphony Hall (for Symphony Hall/Town Hall) on 0121 780 4949 or CBSO Centre on 0121 616 6532. Receivers are available from the Performance Manager at the concert. Guide dogs welcome.
Spaces for patrons who need to remain in their wheelchair during the performance are located on the stalls & upper circle levels of Symphony Hall, stalls & circle levels of Town Hall and are available at CBSO Centre. Please book in advance for Symphony Hall & Town Hall by calling 0121 780 4949 during opening hours.
DISABLED PARKING & DROP-OFF FACILITY:
Blue badge holders and other disabled customers can be dropped off and picked up outside the main entrance of Symphony Hall. This facility needs to be pre-booked at least 24 hours before the concert by phoning the Box Office on 0121 780 4949. Pre-booked taxis will also be allowed access. A drop-off / pick-up ticket will be issued to all those who request this facility to ensure quick and easy access through the barrier.
A limited number of parking spaces for disabled people driving themselves is available at Town Hall and Symphony Hall. Remaining space for concerts up to the end of August 2012 can be booked by calling 0121 780 4949. As demand for these spaces is high, parking spaces for the 2012/13 season will be allocated by ballot in the first instance. The deadline for applications is 1 June; for more details and to enter, call 0121 780 4949. Any spaces left following the ballot can be booked from 2 July on 0121 780 4949. Please have your vehicle registration and blue badge number ready.
We ask for your help in only requesting one of these spaces if you cannot be dropped off as detailed above, to help ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend our concerts. If you have been allocated a parking space at the venue but find that you no longer require it or are no longer attending the concert, we would be very grateful if you would notify us as soon as possible and return the ticket for your parking space, so that someone else can make use of the space. Due to the demand for spaces, please note that parking reservations cannot be made for concert for which you are not also booking tickets, or already hold tickets.
Limited space is available at CBSO Centre for Blue Badge holders driving themselves. Call 0121 616 6532 to reserve parking in advance, with your Blue Badge number and vehicle registration number to hand.
