Covid-19 Update

De Montfort Hall is closed to the public until further notice. We are working hard to reschedule as many shows as we can and we will be in touch with bookers direct to discuss options for affected shows. Updates will also be provided on our social media and website. Thank you for your ongoing patience and support.

ACCESSIBILITY

This website is run by De Montfort Hall. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’re also making the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:

  • navigating using just a keyboard can be difficult in some areas
  • you can’t modify the line height or spacing of text
  • when zoomed in and selecting the menu, you cannot see all the menu items
  • the ticket booking functionality has some accessibility issues, which we are aware of and working to fix by September 2020.
