Lése Majestè @ Ivy House Accessibility Document
Whilst we have tried to cover everything that we could think of, Friends of the Joiners Arms are very happy to hear any additional areas/details that we could include in future accessibility documents – if you have any feedback, please email email@example.com. We are working with The Ivy House to make Lèse-Majesté as accessible as we can, and we are in the process of planning accessibility for future events. If there are any further improvements we could make to the night), please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Ivy House is an inclusive and welcoming space. There is a zero tolerance policy towards any form of discrimination.
For access enquiries please contact:
Aedan Solomon who is working on the night.
40 Stuart Rd, London SE15 3BE
Alternatively, please speak to a volunteer who will be working on the front desk of the ballroom throughout the event
The spacious pub is made up of: a bar, kitchen, front room, ballroom, refractory, a backroom, a green room (for performers, not literally a room that is green in colour!) and a back garden.
There is one small step in the front door of the building which has a portable foldaway metal ramp ready to use that is of a gentle gradient. The width of the front door is less than 5 foot wide. The ramp’s maximum load is 600 pounds or 272kg. The back garden has a ramp of a gentle gradient. The paving in the garden is uneven. The venue has level access throughout. The bar area serves alcoholic beverages and soft drinks. The bar has no adjustments for people using wheelchairs. There is a spittoon that may be in the way of faces of bartenders.
There is no step free access to the stage in the ballroom. There is a block of 3 steps and a final step. The stage is less than a meter tall. There are also 2 steps in the green room.
Toilets are step free but quite narrow, no wider than 75cm or approx. 3 foot 6. We do not have a dedicated access toilet or flashing lights on our alarms. We do however, have a handrail in the ballroom toilet where the event will be held. The toilet in the ballroom will be gender neutral on the night.
The nearest toilet (stalls only) is immediately on the right of the front door. It is a 10 foot walk to a toilet with urinals. The slightly more accessible bathroom with rail is through the ballroom immediately on the left.
There are lots of tables and chairs available. Most are wooden chairs/barstools. The majority do not have arms. A few are tall and have leather cushions. There are also church pews and cushions as well as a bunkette! I.e. this:
Patrons can bring cushions and blankets too if needed.
Temperature control: Patrons can alter the settings and or bring portable heaters/fans if needed, however, they must be PAT tested. Central heating is available throughout the premises including 2 fireplaces. The venue gets quite toasty! Blankets are available. There is no heating outside.
There is a seperate unofficial ‘low input’ room that is always accessible to the public which people can enter not needing to ask staff. This is a place where there is less talking, low lights, less noise and moving lights. There is enough room and the floor is suitable for wheelchairs to move around easily. There is solid wooden floor throughout the spacious pub. Plenty of room for maneuvering. Every entrance to double doors in every room can be opened.
The main circulation routes are free from trip hazards and obstructions.
There will be signposts from the entrance to the ballroom which are not permanent but will be provided at events including LM.
Blue badge holders can not park in Permit Holder Bays but can park in pay by phone or disabled bays. There is a disabled bay opposite the Ivy House on Stuart Road, Waveney Avenue, and 2 more parking bays in Torridge Gardens (0.3 miles) which are both 2 streets behind.
