Have you been hurt at the theatre?
Although many people now prefer to watch films at the cinema or on DVD, the theatre is still a thriving industry and numerous people still go to watch live performances. With many well-known actors and actresses performing live on stages around the county, some shows are sold out months before they actually begin.
Just like in any venue which is open to the public, the management teams in theatres are required to ensure that the building meets the relevant safety regulations. Whilst this may be relatively easy in more modern buildings, many theatres are now historical buildings so they may need to undergo redevelopment to ensure that they meet today’s safety standards.
Whilst most theatres have lifts or elevators to enable wheelchair access to all floors in the buildings, often they request that you arrange this in advance. If you’re able to do so, they may expect that you use the stairs to access your seats or one of the refreshment areas.
As there can be many flights of stairs up to some seating areas, it’s important to be careful when making your way through the theatre. Sometimes the dim lighting can make it more difficult to move around safely so it’s not surprising if an injury does occur.
