Wheelchair & reduced mobility seating
At Cirque du Soleil we make every effort to ensure that every one of our shows offers accommodations to our patrons with special needs. That is why an area in each Grand Chapiteau (big top) has been made wheelchair-accessible. Below you will find all necessary information regarding booking space or seats in this area. Enjoy the show!
Please note that these reservations can be made by phone through Cirque du Soleil Customer Service or by contacting the Royal Albert Hall (for London performances).
Reduced mobility patrons and one escort each are entitled to a specific price reduction. Delivery fees apply.
Additional accompanying people may have to sit in the regular seating area due to a limited number of reduced mobility seats. We cannot guarantee the availability of seats near to the designated wheelchair users' area.
Once you arrive on the site of the show, ushers will guide you towards the appropriate door, section and seats.
Cirque du Soleil does not provide wheelchairs to its patrons.
