The Millennium Forum is a theatre and conference centre in Newmarket Street, Derry, Northern Ireland. It was the first purpose built theatre in Derry and opened in 2001. It has a seating capacity of 1000 and the largest theatre stage in Ireland.
The Millennium Forum does not have a car park, so there are no disabled parking spaces at the theatre. There are steps up into the building, but there is a ramp for people who use wheelchairs or have restricted mobility.
All doors are wide enough for wheelchairs and the reception desk has a lowered section for people with disabilities who use a wheelchair, so poses no real issues on this front. There are seats for people to sit on, who may find it difficult standing when in the queue.
There is a lift to take people in wheelchairs to all levels of the theatre, which is totally accessible at all, levels. Though not all doors are automatic. All printed materials are available in larger print and in braille for thought with limited eyesight.
Guide dogs are allowed within the building and where relevant, there is a hearing loop system available. There are 8 viewing space facilities available in the Millennium Forum and each of them has 4 spaces within.
The front facing staffs have all received disability awareness training within the last 3 years and have trained in British and / or Irish Sign Language. They have also introduced Dementia Friendly performances of the Panto as well as Signed and Relaxed Performances.
