Access Statement

Although we make every attempt to make Hallé at St Michael’s as accessible as possible, aspects of the building make it difficult to make everything fully accessible. St Michael’s is an old building with a narrow staircase to the gallery and as such it is not possible for wheelchair users to access the first floor.
