Tickets and Essential Companion tickets:
The majority of our events have concession tickets available. Registered Disabled customers are entitled to a free companion ticket. Please phone the box office on 0161 761 2216 or come in to talk about your booking as companion tickets are not available for purchase online.
How to get here:
You can get to The Met via accessible public transport including the Metrolink. Bury Interchange, which is accessible, is located 0.2 miles away on level ground. If you are travelling by bus, then Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) can help you plan your journey via their website or over the phone at 0161 244 1000.
Access to The Met:
There is step-free access to The Met’s main entrance and ticket office which involves a slight incline.
Our restaurant and bar, Automatic, has a step free entrance, but is joined to the theatre via a small set of narrow steps. If you have any questions on access requirements when travelling to The Met, please contact our box office.
Access to Derby Hall:
The Derby Hall is our main theatre, and is located on the first floor and can be accessed via the lift or stairs with handrails. There are wheelchair spaces available in the front row. Due to the length of the space between the rows we advise picking an aisle seat or front row seat if you need extra leg room during performances.
Access to The Box:
The Box is our studio theatre and performance space, located on the ground floor with level access. There are wheelchair spaces available in the front row. If you have any questions about access within these spaces, please talk to our box office team who will be happy to discuss.
The Met does not have its own parking, but customers can be dropped off directly outside the entrance on Market St. Customers who hold blue badge parking permits can find spaces at a number of on-street parking spaces in Bury town centre, and at a number of car parks including nearby Bolton Street. A full list of disabled parking spaces can be found on Bury Council’s website here.
We have a large Changing Places toilet on the first floor equipped with a hoist and height adjustable changing table. The first floor is accessible by lift.
