The Corn Exchange offers Disabled concession tickets (on performances where concession price is available) and Essential Companion tickets for performances at the Corn Exchange. If you, or someone for whom you are booking tickets, qualify for the Disabled concession rate and/or the Essential Companion ticket, you will need to sign-up to the Access List in order to make bookings at this rate.

We have created a dedicated e-mail address boxoffice@cornexchangenew.co.uk to encourage more people to share their thoughts on access and tell us what we can do to make visiting us easier and more comfortable.
