Consultation topic What access issues have you had to consider when making sure members and audiences can attend and enjoy rehearsals and concerts?, What actions do you regularly take to make your rehearsals and concerts accessible?, What resources and support could Making Music offer on accessibility?
Consultation notes_current • Member in a wheelchair who couldn’t be accommodated at a proposed new rehearsal venue

• Members with walking frames who need accessible seating or who can’t move around

• Members who need to lean on something when standing

• Members who want to stand all the time during rehearsal

• Making space for wheelchairs in the audience

Who has the final say? Committee should be responsible but MD is always asked if they’re happy. How do you manage that relationship?

How can MM help - guidance or checklist for putting on a relaxed concert. Guidance on what is the law on acccessibility and what is just good practice.
