Bristol Choral Society is working towards being as inclusive as possible for singers and audience members with disabilities or differences. Recognising that each person’s needs are different, we would urge anyone with concerns about accessibility to contact: email@example.com
The choir is supportive of singers who may have mobility issues, and will always seek to make arrangements in an informal way via other members of the choir. Every new member of the choir has a buddy or mentor who is a more experienced choir member.
Our rehearsal venue, Broadmead Baptist Church, has step-free access from the front entrance on Union Street. There is a lift to the first floor, as well as a staircase, and level access into the rehearsal space, which has free-standing (moveable) chairs. There is an accessible toilet. There are some options for drivers with disabilities to park nearby, and there is also access from the Bus and Coach Station, which is just across the main road.
Currently our main venue for concerts is Bristol Cathedral, which has level access into the main nave and the front row of the choir, and step access to the café and toilet areas. It is possible for wheelchair users to reach facilities by a longer route. See https://bristol-cathedral.co.uk/visit-us/access-to-the-cathedral/ .
Bristol Beacon, which is in the process of renovation, is planning to be inclusive for disabled musicians and singers, as well as audience members.
