LSO St Luke’s Public Access information video

This public access video offers information on the main entrance, box office and other locations within LSO St Luke’s.


Main Entrance

Ramps allow easy access to the entrance. Once inside the building, there is level access to the Jerwood Hall and all levels. Automatic doors provide a route to the lift in the northwest stairwell, which goes up to the Balcony or down to the Crypt, giving full access to the public areas of both levels.

From the Artists Entrance a lift goes down to the Crypt, from which access to the Crypt facilities is on one level.

Concert Hall


The Jerwood Hall has two levels, Stalls and Balcony.

When in use for a concert, there is a tiered seating bank at the rear of the Stalls (rows A to F), with rows of linked chairs on floor level in front of the stage (starting row AA). Please note that the seating bank is accessed via central aisles which do not have handrails. There are wheelchair accessible spaces at the Stalls level on either side of the floor-level seating on the front and back rows.

The Balcony has a single row of seats that wrap around the auditorium, plus a second raised row facing the stage. There is lift access and some of the fixed seating can be removed to make three wheelchair positions available.

Personal Receivers

We have personal receivers for use with our hearing assistance system, with or without a hearing aid. These can be collected from the main entrance for concerts and on request from a member of LSO St Luke’s staff for other events. Please phone in advance to ensure that we have sufficient receivers available, as numbers are limited.

Assistance Dogs

If you would like your dog to remain with you in the auditorium or for someone to look after your dog please contact a member of LSO St Luke’s staff to arrange this in advance.


There are two accessible toilets, both in the Crypt. One is adjacent to the public toilets and can be reached by crossing the café. The other is for staff/performers and is located in the service corridor near the conductor’s green room. Members of staff can give directions to this facility when appropriate.

The Crypt café is open from one hour before performances and is accessible via the lift.


Disabled parking spaces are sometimes available directly outside of LSO St Luke’s. To book a space, please call LSO St Luke’s in advance on +4420 7490 3939.
