Rosie Mayes went to see Brandon Flowers at the Manchester Academy and overall had a good experience of the gig.
I found the venue to be fully accessible.”
Rosie gave the Manchester Academy website high scores. She found it easy to navigate and it had enough detailed information. She did have to contact them directly to reserve a place on the balcony for full disabled viewing and to get a free ticket for her PA. The dedicated area on their website for disabled visitors included all the information Rosie needed with about accessibility, parking and toilets.
The access to the venue was good, but Rosie found that the viewing gallery was very crowded with people who weren’t disabled but had VIP tickets. Rosie rated the toilet accessibility as excellent. It was also easy to find a member of staff to ask any questions and they ensured Rosie had a suitable space in the viewing gallery.
[Manchester Academy] features adapted toilets on all four floors and staff were helpful.”
Rosie found the disabled parking and access very good with lowered curbs between the parking spaces and venue entrance. Although sign posting to the car park was only visible when approaching from one direction.
Rosie’s experience of visiting the Manchester Academy was very good. She often chooses to see gigs there rather than in Leeds where often the same artists are playing on the same tour. Manchester Academy has much better disabled access despite it being a longer drive from her home town of Sheffield.
