Essential Companion Scheme
The Octagon Theatre recognises that some customers with disabilities may require the services of a helper or friend to enjoy the facilities offered at the venue. This person is designated as an ‘Essential Companion’. We are happy to offer free seats to ‘Essential Companions’ to enable our customers with disabilities to visit The Octagon Theatre and all its facilities.
The scheme is not open to, or intended for, those who simply require assistance with transportation to The Octagon Theatre. An ‘Essential Companion’ is somebody who is able to help the individual with a disability to use and enjoy the services of The Octagon Theatre, as well as ensuring their safety and wellbeing.
As The Octagon Theatre is a publicly funded organisation, we require either the person with a disability or their appointed representative to complete an Essential Companion Scheme form and provide photo ID and proof of entitlement. You can find a downloadable version of this form to the right on this page.
To be eligible for our Essential Companion Scheme you must be able to demonstrate that you or the relevant member of your party is in receipt of one of the following:
We regret that if you, or the relevant member of your party, are receiving any other form of benefit than those listed you do not qualify for this scheme and so will not be eligible for complimentary tickets.
If you have difficulty completing the membership form or would like more information, please contact the Box Office. A member of our team will be pleased to assist you.
The Octagon is also pleased to offer the following services:
Please contact the Box Office on 01935 422884 for further information on the above and for advice on seat selection.
