Competition Ts and Cs
There is bicycle parking available at both Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre.
At the Concert Hall this can be found near the back of the building on the Museum side.
At Perth Theatre this can be found outside the Mill Street entrance.
There is both on-street and off-street parking on Mill Street where charges apply from 8am - 6pm Monday to Saturday. There are three disabled public car parking spaces directly opposite the main entrance to the concert hall but these tend to fill very quickly.
There is also a car park on Kinnoull Street which is operated by Smart Parking Car Parks (01738 440 933).
This 550-space multi-storey car park is open from 7am – midnight Monday to Saturday and 10am – midnight on Sundays. It is a pay-and-display car park meaning that the charge must be paid on arrival.
A height restriction for this car park is also in place: approximately two metres (six-and-a-half feet). Vehicles higher than this should park in South Inch car park where there's no height restriction.

Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre have been designed to be disability friendly. We have lifts to all levels, Induction Loops, FM Headsets and staff who are happy to help.
A trained team describes the action on stage to visually impaired patrons in the audience through either FM Headsets. Description will begin ten minutes prior to curtain up with scene setting and programme notes. Audio Description is available for certain performances only, please contact Box Office for dates and times.
These are an innovative way for the visually impaired patron to have the full theatre experience. Those attending the Audio Described performance have the opportunity to feel sets and costumes and have all the aspects of the production and staging described to them. Available on same dates as Audio Described performances, contact our FOH team at email@example.com to book your place.
A talking version of our brochure is available. Please contact our Front of House team at firstname.lastname@example.org or Box Office on 01738 621031 for a copy.
For some of our performances we offer British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreted performances. Please contact Box Office who can advise dates and times for these performances and best seats to view the interpreter as it may change by performance. Please email email@example.com
What is a relaxed performance?
Relaxed performances are less formal and have a more supportive atmosphere allowing everyone to experience the joy of live performance. This means we'll take a relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium. Latecomers will be admitted, and re-admittance will be allowed throughout the show. Everyone is welcome to attend, however customers with an autistic spectrum condition, sensory sensitivity, communication or learning disability may find these performances particularly beneficial. The relaxed performance is still the same show, but with some small changes including:
Visual Stories are designed to help customers with a variety of special needs and those on the autistic spectrum to prepare for their visit to Perth Theatre.
Our Visual Story contains lots of images along with helpful information to help you to understand what to expect from your visit and to prepare for the sights and sounds of the experience.
How To Book
Tickets for relaxed performances can be bought online, in person at Perth Concert Hall or Perth Theatre, or by calling our Box Office on 01738 621031.
If you would like more information about relaxed performances, or if you have specific requirements you feel we should know about, please email Lauren Oakes LaurenOakes@horsecross.co.uk or call our Box Office on 01738 621031.
At Perth Concert Hall we have an Induction Loop in the Gannochy Auditorium which is in use for most performances; just turn your hearing aid to ‘t’ position.
At Perth Theatre we have FM Headsets which can be collected from either the Box Office on arrival or from a member of the FOH team. These headsets are used instead of a hearing aid to receive enhanced sound from stage.
All guide, hearing and assistance dogs are welcome in both our buildings.
We have booster seats for the little ones (available for Stalls only seating in both venues); Both Glassrooms Café and Perth Theatre Café provide high chairs, bottle warming and we’re breast feeding friendly. There are baby changing facilities for men and women to use.
Who are they for?
The backpacks are designed for anyone living with autism, down syndrome, sensory processing disorder, anxiety & dementia. However, anyone who feels they would benefit from extra support in our buildings can borrow them.
How do people borrow them?
They ask for a sensory backpack at box office- these can be borrowed anytime; it doesn’t need to be for a performance.
Are they free?
Yes! The backpacks are completely free to borrow.
What is in the bags?
60 drawstring bags each containing:
We do provide limited items that are more expensive to buy and therefore must be signed out and returned (weighted lap pads, ear defenders, sand timers and liquid timers).
