Accessibility

We are determined that as many people as possible will have access to the full range of events at Halmstad Theatre. To this end, we have compiled a wide range of information about accessibility, such as how you can hear music, how to get about the theatre in a wheelchair, lift availability and airborne allergens. And where are the toilets?

Audio induction loop system

You can borrow receivers tuned into our audio induction loop free of charge. You can then listen via your hearing aid.

  • Grand Auditorium: contact cloakroom staff if you need to borrow a receiver for the hearing loop in the Grand Auditorium.
  • Banqueting Hall: audio induction loop system available. No receiver is required, simply set your hearing aid to the loop setting.
  • Figaro Hall: if you need to borrow a receiver for the hearing loop in the Figaro Hall, please contact a member of staff on arrival.

Designated wheelchair spaces

These places can only be booked via the Halmstad Tourist Centre. Our staff will be only too happy to assist you when you arrive at the theatre.

  • Grand Auditorium: there are eight designated wheelchair spaces in Row 24 of the stalls.
  • Banqueting Hall: please advise your needs when booking an event and we will prepare your place.

Assistance dogs

The term assistance dogs refers to guide dogs for people who are visually impaired, service dogs for people with disabilities, and signal dogs for people who are deaf or hearing impaired. Naturally, these animals are always welcome at Halmstad Theatre in the company of their owner.

Nut-free

As many people are allergic to nuts, these have been removed from the range of snacks at the Theatre Bar.

Perfume

There may people with allergies in the auditorium. Please consider either avoiding the use of perfume or choosing a subtle fragrance. This applies to both ladies and gentlemen.
