Every event has the option for a Deaf or disabled person to bring a personal assistant/support worker at no additional cost when purchasing their own ticket.

For seated events, we use portable fold-out seats that are configured differently depending on the show. This means we can offer accessible seating in any area you’d prefer, our staff can assist in quickly removing a seat to create a wheelchair space at any position in the room. If you’d like to access the event space early to choose a space or facilitate this process please contact us in advance.
Staff can also provide a chair at any point during a standing show on request.

TESTBED is a cashless venue, only card payments are accepted at all our bars, box office, and cloakroom.
Why? - Since 2019 all The Wunderkind Group premisis have been cashless. There are no tills, no cash, and no safes on the premises.
Being fully cashless helps to ensure the safety of our staff and our building.
We researched and considered the decision long and hard. We are aware that being cashless impacts those who find the access to, or the use of card services difficult. We have our own internal policies in place to ensure all our customers have an accessible and enjoyable experience, Please contact us if this would be prohibitive to your visit and we can arrange a solution.
We accept all types of card payments, as well as contactless e-payments via smartphones, watches, and other devices.
TESTBED does not tolerate the use and consumption of drugs of any kind, unless medical. Our security team will search all attendees.
We believe nights out should be about fun and freedom, not fear. TESTBED operates a Zero Tolerance Policy. We do not tolerate any harmful or disrespectful behaviours such as : Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia, Transphobia, Ableism, Ageism, Fatphobia.
Our staff and door team have received training to help them, and us as an organisation to better understand, respond to, and prevent sexual harassment and assault.
