The Jazz Centre UK is fully accessible. The front entrance of The Beecroft Art Gallery is one level.


All floors are fully accessible via public lifts within the Building. The Jazz Centre UK has a dedicated lift to the front entrance of the centre. This lift does not accommodate some motorised scooters. Suitable lifts for scooters are available to the rear of the building.

A disabled toilet is available on the ground floor. Limited disabled parking spaces are available at the rear of the building. Access to this carpark is through the Beecroft Rear Staff Car Park (to the left of the multi-storey car park entrance).​


Are you performing/exhibiting at The Jazz Centre UK? You likely have some heavy equipment to load into the Centre.


A ground level entrance is available at the rear of the building for loading equipment. Please get in touch with our staff or arrive early to organise for this entrance to be opened.


There is also a smaller entrance that directly descends into The Jazz Centre UK by the stage area. This is not recommended for heavier items due to steep steps.


If you have any questions about accessing The Jazz Centre UK or would like to inform our Volunteers in advance about any special requirements, do not hesitate to get in touch.
