This site uses HTML5 and CSS3 to do some pretty modern things. We're no longer living in the past, and browsers like this one (Internet Explorer 6) are very, very out of date. So, you get this stripped-down, boring version. To get around this, upgrade, or download Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera. Think of the children.
Access to the Albert Hall for wheelchair users is via the Maid Marian Way entrance, which is the more modern side of the building next to the traffic island.
All rooms in use for New Adventures (The Great Hall, the reception area, the meals and refreshment areas, toilets and so on) have disabled access.
Please note however that with regard to The Great hall itself, wheelchair access is only available on the top left and right stalls (the best views to be honest), accessible via lift. Space here will be reserved for those with disabilities if we are made aware in advance.
When you register for the event, you will be asked if you have any disabilities we need to consider. Please be careful to inform us at that time, so that we can make any necessary preparations, and ensure someone is on hand to assist you at the venue if needs be.
If you wish to assess the venue for disabled access, please download the floor plan (PDF) which clearly shows access points for all users.
From Simon: As an advocate of web standards, accessibility and usability, I care very much that every website I create is built responsibly and can be used by all visitors. I have made every effort to ensure that this website meets my own criteria, current best-practice, and relevant legislation.
That said, there is always more we can all do to improve accessibility. This is the first version of this website, and I am still making improvements under the hood. Please be patient if something doesn't work for you. I'm most likely working on it.
If you do have any feedback, questions, corrections, or problems, then please contact me.
