From the 8th of April 2019 ‘Sheaf St’ and ‘Duke Studios’ will be a cashless venue. This is across the whole building, the café, all bars, all events and all services. We will only accept card payments.
There will be no tills, no cash and no safes on the premises.
We have repeatedly been targeted by thieves and going fully cashless helps to ensure the safety of our staff and our building.
80% of transactions we’re already on card and moving to a full 100% also allows us to speed up service on busy events.
We researched and considered the decision long and hard. We are aware that being cashless impacts those who find the access to, or the use of card services difficult the most. We have our own internal policies in place to ensure all our customers have an accessible and enjoyable experience, please do get in touch if you have any questions.
There will be clear signage reminders throughout the venue. We accept all types of card payments, as well as contactless e-payments via smartphones, watches, and other devices.

We welcome deaf and disabled customers at our venue. As a heritage building there are certain restrictions on what we can do for accessibility but we have everything in place that we need to be an accessible venue and always try to accommodate to the best of our ability.
There is one single step at our main entrance which we have a portable ramp for. This is stored in a convenient place for easy access. Once you’re in the building everything is level.
Our main toilets do not have an accessible cubicle however we have a fully accessible toilet in our workspace. Our friendly members of staff will be able to give you a fob for the door and it’s just a short distance with a clear, flat path through our co-working space.
For Events here, there are no dedicated wheelchair spaces – we have movable seating so you’re welcome to sit wherever you feel comfortable. We have no lowered bars however our friendly bar staff are always on hand to help.
We have a hearing loop throughout the bar and Event Space.
If an event is ticketed and you’re unable to purchase before hand we’re usually able to reserve tickets to pick at up on the door (providing the event isn’t sold out)
Some of our events are run by promoters and some we put on ourselves. In both cases it may be possible to request a free ticket for a PA for anyone unable to attend without support.
Strobe lighting and smoke machines may be used at some of our events – we will put signage up when this is the case.
We welcome anyone who may need to bring food/drink or equipment needed to manage a medical condition. Refrigeration of medicine may also be possible. Please contact us before you arrive so we can let our security team know as searches for liquids are often in place.
Sheaf St is a dog friendly venue including assistance dogs.
