Looking after your needs
Once inside, the building itself is pretty darn good for accessibility with disabled toilets, Changing Places facilities, lifts, and a portable induction loop. See The Public’s accessibility page for full details.
It seems as though The Public’s staff are trained and amenable – we haven’t put this to the test ourselves with wheelchairs or toddlers, but we do frequently make our own random requests! We’re not staff as such, but we’re friendly too and if you’re got any particular needs or questions we’ll do our best to sort things out or find things out for you.
There are Sheffield stands directly outside The Public. Since several of our events may involve cycle fettling, please check individual event pages for arrangements to bring your steeds inside.
A five minute walk (about 500 metres) from West Bromwich Central tram station, the Metro serves as a quick and easy way to get to The Public from Birmingham City Centre or Wolverhampton (approximately 15 minutes from Birmingham and Wolverhampton).
