“The Phillip Zorab conference was one of the finest educational events I have attended. Even after practicing  childrens spine surgery for 40 years , I came away from the conference with note pad filled with ideas for research projects stimulated by the conference presentation and many clinical concepts that I will consider adding to my practice.” Stuart Weinstein, Ignacio V.

venue

We have chosen Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin, Ireland. The venue is in the heart of Dublin.

 

Smock Alley Theatre lies in an unassuming part of Dublin city. Nestled on the banks of the River Liffey in a quiet part of Temple Bar you would be forgiven for thinking it a quiet little building. But its foundations lie in the oldest part of Dublin. Smock Alley Theatre stands next to the founding site of Dublin, where battles raged amongst Celtic settlers and marauding Vikings. And, in turn, settled Vikings tried in vain to defend attacks from invading Normans. By the time the theatre was built, Ireland was part of the Kingdom of England and were under the rule of King Charles II. The city was one of the most important in the Kingdom, so much so, that it was given its own Theatre Royal. Indeed, Smock Alley Theatre was the first and only Theatre Royal ever to be built outside the great walls of London.

Venue information

Accessibility 

All spaces in Smock Alley are accessible by wheelchair. 

There is a “press here for mobility assistance’ buzzer out on street level at our front gates which calls straight into our box-office desk, if you need someone to come out to assist.

The Main Space | Step free access to this space is down the side of the building which brings one into the Main Space on the ground level. Seats can be removed in the front row (which is on stage/ground level) to make space for a wheelchair. The Main Space can usually accommodate up to 6 wheelchairs.

Boys’ School | Access is through the fire escape door which opens directly out on to Exchange St Lower. There is a step up to this door but we have a temporary ramp that we put out for access requirements. Our staff will always be on hand to assist. The Boys’ School can accommodate 1 or 2 wheelchairs although this number can vary, depending on the layout for the event in question. The theatre foyer and Banquet Hall spaces can be accessed from the Boys’ School. There is a ramp/walkway that winds around the entire space with doors that exit out on to each different level of the building.

Mobile Telephone/video recording - We would ask you to turn off your communication devices in the theatre. Photography and video recording is not allowed.
