Wheelchair users and registered disabled patrons are entitled to one free PA/Carer ticket, to be booked through the Ticketmaster Accessibility team – number above (subject to documentation).

Wheelchair users should request a “Platform Access ticket” when booking their chosen screening. This ticket guarantees the disabled patron and their carer a place on the viewing platform for the duration of the screening. The platform is situated at the rear of the courtyard. Spaces are limited.

The Platform is not able to accommodate large groups. If disabled patrons are part of a larger group, their friends and family may be able to sit directly in front of the platform however please contact Cat Stroud at Somerset House on 020 7845 4613 after booking your tickets.

Food & Drink
A range of food is available to buy on site, and there is a fully-licensed bar and coffee point. You are welcome to bring your own picnic, but we regret that no glass, crockery or sharp knives are allowed into the courtyard.

Tom’s Kitchen are offering a selection of picnic hampers which can be bought via Ticketmaster at the same time as purchasing tickets, to collect at the venue on the night.  These will be available to purchase up until 3 working days before the event.  If you have any special dietary requirements please contact Tom’s Kitchen direct to arrange alternatives. Please note that hampers are not available through Ticketmaster's mobile site. 

A Peroni Nastro Azzurro bar, serving their new aperitivo, Peroni Ambra will also be open in the West Wing (next to the courtyard).     

You are welcome to bring alcohol in to the site, but we ask that customers bring no more than the equivalent of one bottle of wine or four cans of beer per person. We reserve the right to use our discretion and may confiscate anything in excess of this brought on to the site. Please remember no glass is allowed on to the site and any bottles need to be decanted in to plastic.

Please check the age certificate of the film you are booking. Entrance to double bill programmes is restricted to the film of highest certification, even if you are only planning to stay for one film.
