Parking, drop-off and pick up areas
There’s often lots of competition for parking in St Andrews. Leave an extra half hour for parking when you plan your journey. There are four accessible parking spaces outside the entrances (two on South Street, two on Abbey Street). There is a large drop off area on Abbey Street that allows direct access to the Theatre.
The foyer is made up of several, distinct spaces. Depending on how busy the building is – there are usually areas that are quiet. Additional spaces, like the level four foyer, can sometimes be available too – a member of staff will be able to help. There is a first aid room on level two – with a couch which could be appropriate for adult changing. This is backstage and a member of staff will be able to assist with access. Lighting in the café bar and in some of the toilets is muted. The light in the auditorium and studio is also muted but staff are trained and available to assist. Hard floor surfaces mean that the foyer areas can be quite noisy at times.
There are accessible toilets on levels one and four of the theatre. Level one toilets also have baby changing facilities.
