LSO St Luke’s is on three levels. The performance space and the stalls of the Jerwood Hall are at ground level. Lifts give access to all levels.

LSO St Luke's has personal receivers for use with our infrared system with or without a hearing aid. These can be collected from the main entrance for concerts, and on request. There are two accessible toilets, both at Crypt level.

If you would like your assistance dog to remain with you in the auditorium, please mention this when booking for a workshop, event or concert to ensure you are given a seat with enough space. We can also arrange for your dog to be looked after.
