Access for all as Dore G&S move to a new venue

DORE Gilbert and Sullivan Society are aiming to make their next show accessible to all audiences as they move to a new venue.

The popular Sheffield amateur theatre company will present their next production, classic operetta The Yeomen of the Guard, at the Merlin Theatre in Nether Edge from April 10 to 13.

The Merlin is a community theatre set in the scenic grounds of Tintagel House at Meadowbank Road.

And one of the main reasons the company chose it for their 2019 show was because of its accessibility for disabled visitors.

“It’s very easy to get to and we shall have marshalled disabled parking available at the theatre’s car park, giving priority to people who might otherwise be unable to get to the show,” said Dore secretary Gill Rugg.

“There’s also plenty of space for parking around the venue and buses 3 and 3A come out regularly from High Street in the city centre.

“We are delighted to be making our debut at the Merlin, which is a wonderful gem of a theatre and perfectly suited to the needs of a group like ours.”
