Hackney Arts Centre is undergoing refurbishment work to provide level access to both venues. Until this work is completed we will not be able to promise level access to the upper venue (the Auditorium). If you require level access to attend please contact us before purchasing tickets so we can advise you of where the works have got to.
The downstairs venue (Main Events Hall) is unseated for most of our events. If you do require a seat, we can provide you with an allocated space by the stage within our viewing area for live and DJ led music events.
In the Auditorium, all events are seated, but should you require a space for a wheelchair we have an accessible platform by the stage.
We offer a 2 for 1 ticket policy for personal assistants. This arrangement is made through the venue and not the ticketing agencies, please contact us for more details.
Please email either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or call between Monday and Friday 10am – 5pm on 0207 422 7505. If the event is sold out we cannot sell extra tickets. All accessible areas and seat / area allocations are subject to availability.
Details of local transport links and distances of stations and stops from the venue can be found on our contact page.
Getting to HAC
Blue bay parking can be found reasonably close to the venue - there is an online map here.
People with disabilities are offered priority entry. Please contact us prior to arrival to arrange this.
Getting into HAC
We do not currently have an accessible bar however we will provide a bartender if required.
In the event of an emergency where we need to evacuate the building, we ask that wheelchair users remain in the designated viewing area until assistance is given from a member of staff.
If you use a wheelchair and want to go outside to smoke please inform a member of staff and we will give you access to the rear exit.
Deaf and Visually Impaired Customers
Visually impaired customers are more than welcome to use the accessible viewing area if they would like to. Assistance dogs may be allowed into the venue depending on the type of event.
Alternatively, we are able to accommodate one assistance dog in our production office for the duration of the event but they will have to be happy to share this space with our very friendly English Bull Terrier, Biba.
People with Photo-sensitive Epilepsy
We use strobe and flashing lighting in the venue and if you need any further information about this please ring the venue on 0207 422 7505 and ask to speak to Josh or Amelie.
