The Ticket Factory offer a free of charge Access Requirements Register in collaboration with Nimbus Disability, who operate the national Access Card.
When you register, they will handle all of your information securely and safely without us ever having to see the detail behind why you need accessible seating options.
Once you have registered, Nimbus will provide you with a unique code which you can then use to link your access needs into The Ticket Factory booking system. This will then open up accessible seating options for you to book online as well as make necessary arrangements should you qualify for a free essential companion ticket, specific to your requirements.
