  • Avoid analysis paralysis, suspend your judgement, adapt to any situation.
  • Improv helps develop empathy of human needs, wants, behaviours and motivations.​

Accessibility Info

There are two gender neutral toilets on the ground floor, one is accessible. We have baby changing facilities in the accessible toilet. You are welcome to breastfeed your baby here.

Open Source Arts is accessed via a slightly uneven floor outside. The main door is about a metre in width and 5 metres in height. The venue is split over two floors, with access to the upstairs (housing the cafe and dance studio spaces) via a staircase of 14 stairs with hand banisters on both sides, which unfortunately is not currently wheelchair accessible.

We have very limited parking on site – which is reserved for those who must drive for access.

If you require a free place for a personal assistant or have any other accessibility questions, please get in touch with us in good time before you intend to arrive and we will do our best to help.

Contact [email protected] if you need to get in touch for more info or accessibility requirements.
