DISABILITY ACCESS TICKETS
We have a dedicated team of customer assistants waiting to help you get the right ticket for your requirements. Comic Con Manchester customers with specific access requirements will need to register these details with our Customer Care team when they buy their ticket. Everybody’s requirements will be different, and we want to ensure your enjoyment of the event, therefore, disability tickets can only be booked by calling our Customer Care team on 0344 8000 410. Phone lines are open Monday - Saturday 9am - 9pm & Sundays and Bank Holidays 10am - 5pm.
All care assisted and disability customers will receive tickets allowing priority access to Comic Con Manchester, avoiding the queues and giving priority for autographs and photograph opportunities, as well as at the front door. Customers will need to show their accessibility priority tickets to our venue stewards on arrival.
Comic Con Manchester will provide a free ticket to carers or personal assistants of fans who are attending that have a medical disability to accompany them within the venue. The person with the disability will need to have a full price general admission ticket, and it is only the carer or personal assistant who is entitled to a free ticket. If the person with a disability is under 16 years of age, a carer ticket will not be granted as all persons under 16 years of age need adult supervision anyhow. In order to receive an additional ticket, the personal assistant needs to be on the carer's register which we will require proof of.
Please call our customer services team to book on 0344 8000 410. Phone lines are open Monday - Saturday 9am - 9pm & Sundays and Bank Holidays 10am - 5pm.
