We want to make your visit to Z-arts as enjoyable as possible and try our best to cater for everyone’s needs, however big or small. We have a dedicated audio induction loop in the theatre, free tickets for personal assistants, relaxed performances and can find a quiet space for you if you need somewhere less busy to relax during your visit.

If there’s anything we can do to assist you during your visit, please contact our House Manager Emma at or 0161 226 1912 and we’ll do everything we can to make your visit as fantastic as possible.

Our Building

The theatre, screening room, gallery, dance space and musics studio are accessible via lift with wheelchair access to all areas.


Anyone who requires an essential companion, including guide dogs, to accompany them to events at Z-arts can bring an one at no charge. Essential Companion tickets are available to book online for all events as well as in person at the Box Office or by telephone on 0161 226 1912.


We’re aware that getting little ones to sit down and be silent is a near impossible task at times! So for all of the children’s shows in our Big Imaginations programme we allow latecomers and families are free to nip out and come back in if some time outside would be helpful or an emergency loo trip is required! A lot of us here at Z-arts have little ones of our own so we know how tricky a trip to the theatre with a tiny one can be. We aim to make things as easy as possible so everyone, big or small, has a great day!
