Extra details about Usher Hall
The Usher Hall is Scotland's only five-star concert hall hosting a range of concerts from rock, pop, classical, jazz, world and folk music. The venue has hosted concerts and events since it opened way back in 1914! A beautiful Edwardian building with a modern twist, which is well loved by performers and audiences all over the world due to its magnificent acoustics.
You’ll find level entry to the ground floor on the Grindlay Street side of the building’s new wing, and lift access to all levels of the hall. There’s a loop system in place for hearing aid users (switch your hearing aid to the T position) and assistance dogs are very welcome.
Wheelchair provision changes depending on the event. Usher Hall has up to 10 places in the Stalls and two in the Grand Circle. And while some of the bar areas aren’t fully accessible, we have plenty of staff on hand to take your drinks orders and bring them to you.
To enquire about wheelchair bookings for any event at the Usher Hall, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements and one of the Box Office staff will be in contact to assist.
It’s worth noting that the Upper Circle isn’t suited to anyone with mobility issues, difficulty climbing stairs, vertigo or a fear of heights.
If you have limited mobility or use a wheelchair, we’d recommend that you travel to Grindlay Street, which is where you’ll find the level access podium. You’ll find free parking for blue badge holders across from the Royal Lyceum Theatre on Grindlay Street and outside the Traverse Theatre on Cambridge Street — but please remember that there are three other venues nearby, and there may be high demand for these spaces.
