A larger venue, which is only accessible by stairs (approx. 30). Once in the venue, the toilets are accessible via 5 stairs. There is no accessible toilet. Artists perform on a raised stage in a sunken area. There is a raised viewing area where space is made available for patrons with mobility impairments.
