Tina the Musical, Nicola Walker, Venue Accessibility, Cherry Blossom Poetry

A report was published last week looking at booking accessible tickets for people with disabilities, for music and entertainment venues. Samira Ahmed speaks to Claire Griffin from the Roundhouse in London and Richard Howle from the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham - both venues praised in the report for their progress in becoming accessible venues. Mik Scarlet, Access and Inclusion Advisor and a regular gig goer himself, joins the conversation to discuss if the report reflect his own experience and to consider what further improvements need to be made to the industry as a whole. The cherry trees are blooming here and in Japan, where the blossom prompts celebration - drinking, picnics, poetry reading and the writing of haikus under flower festooned branches.
