The dome can seat up to 30 adults or 35 young children. The dome itself is made of fireproof material and supports easy access for wheelchair users if required. Within the dome there is an elaborate ventilation system to ensure comfort for the audience.

If there are any wheelchair users we should be informed ahead as well if you have a mix of the above audiences then please contact us to discuss. Please note that students/ people must not sit on the inside lip of the dome as this slows evacuation.
