Tramway reopened to the public in June 2000 following almost two years of major Scottish Arts Council National Lottery funded redevelopment. This work has ensured that Tramway is now a fully accessible space. There is level access to Tramway 1, 2 and 4 and lift access to the temporary Café Bar and Stables. Tramway welcomes assistance dogs. The performance spaces are equipped with the latest infra red systems which may be used for audio description and sound amplification. Please contact Tramway prior to your visit if you have any additional requirements.
