We have a lift that can take you from street level down to the studio level. Please contact the Box Office on 0844 264 2140 to make this booking as the studio is an unreserved area and we want to ensure that all our customers are accommodated.
Please note that we do not have a hearing system in place in the studio.

The St. James Theatre does not have customer parking although there is street parking in the surrounding area after 6.30pm on weekdays and on the weekends, please note this is pay via phone only. There are spaces for Blue Badge holders on Palace Street.
On the 01 October 2015, St. James Theatre introduced a transaction fee of £1.50 per booking, payable when payments are made online or by phone. No transaction fee is applied to tickets purchased in person at the box office.
We are proud to be known for providing excellent customer service but there are significant costs associated with making this possible, both in terms of staffing and in the upkeep of our box office systems. Introducing the transaction fee – which is one charge per booking as opposed to per ticket – is the fairest way of ensuring we can cover our costs and maintain the highest standard of service, whilst trying to minimise the impact on the customer.
