Nice venue etc etc, but it’s difficult to navigate yourself to your seat. Ticket gives you Row and seat number, but if you go in the wrong door, you have to push your way past rows of people. Add the door number to the ticket,...More

Call or email the venue, they will be able to advise (but you may have to wait until a few days before the show, they may not have this info at this time).
