The WayOut Club has been accessible to wheelchair users at Charlies for 14 years and has had many regular visitors with disabilities and special needs, including large electric wheelchair users. (including my own nephew Jamie for one)
Friends who have disabilities often tell us that The WayOut Club is the most friendly club that they visited and the most diverse, making them feel very relaxed and welcomed. No one is “normal” at WayOut and that’s the way we like it.
THE BAD NEWS
I am sorry to announce to all our WayOut friends who use wheelchairs – There is no access to our venue GILT BAR which is on the first floor – if however you have a lightweight wheelchair and assistants that can carry you – the venue is all on one level.
I know that is a rubbish situation. My own nephew Jamie uses a heavy electric wheelchair and loves to come to WayOut and I know, having helped bring him up how poor accessibility is just RUBBISH
However as a ‘Stand up Comedian’ Jamie has learnt to use a lightweight wheelchair and assistants to get him into some of the venues he wants to work in.
Hope to see you soon – Dont hesitate to call me to check anything 07778 157 290
