We want to be clear about how accessible each venue is that we're playing on our upcoming tour! A few points to start with:

- If you have a disability and require a personal assistant for any of the shows let us know in advance and we can ensure your PA does not have to buy a ticket by putting their name on our guest list. 

- We will ensure there will be no strobing lights at any of the shows

- All toilets will be gender neutral

- There will be some form of 'Chill out space/corner' at all of the shows

- No one will be turned away if low on funds.

Leeds- Temple of Boom-

Accessibility: 
Has a ramp, so no steps, an accessible toilet and the Cafe is quiet. They don't have a lowered section of the bar.

Toilets: Will be gender neutral. Has a wheelchair accessible toilet. 

Extra info from a customer's perspective quoted from Euansguide.com:

"The main entrance to Temple of Boom has a step in the door, so wheelchair access is via the entrance used for vehicles. This entrance is a large archway, with double gates shutting it off from the public. Once through the gate, there is a short slope into the main courtyard. On the right is the bar and toilets. There is a concrete ramp into this building, and double doors plenty wide enough to allow a wheelchair through. An accessible toilet is available, complete with grab rails and emergency cords, but full changing facilities are unfortunately not included. The key to this toilet can be obtained from members of staff, who are all very friendly and accommodating. On the left is the room where events (concerts, wrestling shows etc.) takes place. There are two entrances; one has a small lip down into a narrow corridor which is surpass-able in a wheelchair, but if preferred the goods entrance is more accessible, with level access and a wider doorway."
