●○● ACCESSIBILITY ●○●
Our main priority is that any not-straight women and non-binary people who want to come to Dyke In The Pit should find the space it’s hosted in useable and welcoming. This is a big reason why we want to host at DIY Space for London as much as possible, because we know they’re really committed to making this a reality.
DIY Space for London is on a single floor level, with access ramps, widened doors, an accessible toilet and plenty of space for maneuvering and getting away from crowds. There is plenty of seating available and the toilets are gender neutral and accessible.
On entering the venue there is a small ramp, which is quite steep and might require assistance going up and down. If you are a wheelchair user and not travelling with anyone, let us know in advance you are coming so someone at the venue can be there to assist.
Once you are in the venue – the bar, performance space, meeting room, practice space and smoking area are all step free. The bar has a lowered section on the left-hand side for accessible ordering of drinks. The accessible toilet is up a ramp which shouldn’t require assistance to go up.
FREE TICKETS FOR PERSONAL ASSISTANTS
We support the practice of free tickets for support workers, personal assistants or carers and encourage external event promoters to do the same.
ACCESS TO VIEWING AREAS
In the performance space, we have removed the old ramp to replace with an improved version. We are working on creating a ramp that better suits everyone. Additional seating is always available.
