Accessibility Info for The Lido


Our goal is to make fine. as inclusive and accessible as possible. We are focused on ensuring everyone is made to feel welcome, safe, involved and engaged.

With this in mind, we are providing the following details about The Lido so everyone can be aware of what the venue provides, and what it does not. We are not experts on the range of disabilities/impairments people may have, or on the range of human diversity of our event goers, but we are always looking to improve so we encourage you to share your feedback with us.

If you have specific requirements or questions, we’ll do our best to provide a solution for you! You can contact us confidentially by email at: and we’ll see what we can work out. For performers, if you require a ramp for the stage, let us know and we’ll make sure we have one on the night.

Everyone is welcome (as long as you’re nice).
