Cafe & Bar

Deaf Conversations About Cinema

At Watershed we want to be as welcoming, inclusive and accessible as we can for all our customers, audiences, staff and visitors. 

Our building is accessible, our customer facing staff have received basic BSL and Deaf awareness training and we run an accessible programme of screenings and events. We have both gender neutral and gender specific toilets as well as two accessible toilets.

Our toilets in the top foyer are for everyone - some of the fully enclosed cubicles have a sink and mirror in them, some are ambulant (a bit more spacious with supports such as grab rails) and there is also a large family room with plenty of room for a buggy. Just through the Café & Bar we still have separate male and female toilets.
