The Raglan Old School Arts Centre is wheelchair accessible with parking, a ramp and an accessible toilet. Loose seating is used for movie screenings and concerts allowing easy provision of spaces for wheelchairs.

Wheelchair ramp

The wheel chair access ramp is located behind the Old School Arts Centre. Look for the bell button which is located on the Creative Space verandah pole to your right. This bell push is connected to the main office between the hours of 10am – 2pm weekdays. For all other events outside these hours e.g. movies or concerts please arrive at the front door where the event is being held (movies front door at the main Old School building or music/ front door of the Creative Space) where a member of our events team will provide access for you.

A dedicated car parking space is available behind the Old School Arts Centre at all times.

On the first floor of our new building is the Whare Tapere room. There is an accessible staircase to Whare Tapere | Theatre Workshop. Wheel chair access is currently not available to the Theatre Workshop. We have started fundraising for a lift to be installed.


By Bus

There is a GoBus service from the Hamilton Transport Centre with the bus stop located outside the Magnolia Tree Childcare Raglan Day Care  (Formerly Raglan Childcare) at 5 Wallis Street. Bus route number is 23 and runs several times daily. Buses on this service are wheelchair friendly. Wheelchairs must be under 250 kg in weight and 80 cm in width to travel on the bus. The bus operator always aims to operate accessible buses, however there may be times when this is not possible due to operational reasons.

The Arts Centre is approximately one kilometre from the bus stop and Raglan township.

To get to the Arts Centre from Wallis St, go past the Raglan Project shop next to the Childcare, then turn left into on Bow St. Just before the tee intersection  with Wainui Road, cross Bow Street, then turn right into Wainui Road.  Go past the shops and Fire Station and the Raglan Info Centre/ Raglan Museum then cross Wainui road to the Union Church, then go up Stewart St. The entrance of the Arts Centre is on the right at 5 Stewart St.
