Paper Dress Vintage is a two storey venue, with both the gig and QUEER being held in the upstairs venue, which is accessed by a staircase. Once upstairs there is a bar, bathrooms and the dancefloor which is all on one level.
As such We'd suggest that the event is not wheelchair accessible. Folks who may have mobility issues, might have issues with the stairs dependant on their condition. If anyone is using crutches etc, we will endeavour to keep the the stairwell clear to help with access.
If you require any additional information regarding accessibility or anything else, feel free to contact us.
QUEER is a straight-friendly event so all are welcome! Remember to invite all your friends/allies to the event.
