Assistive Listening Devices
We offer hearing assistance to our customers with the Sennheiser Tourguide 2020-D system. This transmits an audio feed of the event using FM radio frequencies.
Due to the limited number of devices we strongly recommend you book in advance. If you require a headset please make this known at the time of booking your event ticket. You can book via our dedicated access via email only at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following devices are available at our venue:
Stethoset receivers earphones are built in - for people who need a clearer audio feed, predominantly spoken word type events where background noise and reverberation in the hall reduces the intelligibility of what customers hear.
Bodypack receivers - with 3.5 mm audio port - as above, but for people who want to use their own earphones/headphones OR for hearing aid users via an induction neck loop.
Induction neck loops - for use with the bodypack receivers, they plug into the audio port and then create a small induction loop for the user to then connect their hearing aid to.
Accessible tickets - these can be purchased online through our ticket service provider website Ticketmaster (click here to view our "How to book accessible tickets online guide"), or through our Accessible Tickets Line on: 0114 256 5593, lines open Mon - Fri 10-4pm or by text relay service via www.textrelay.org
