Where is the disabled persons' access?
I was a little perturbed by the location of the parking for disabled visitors. I accept that the spaces reserved are nearest to the access path, but that path reaches the Hall via a double flight of steps. There was no alternative ramp indicated nor could I find one. What are disabled persons supposed to do?
|The audience's view of the lecturer.|
The venue for my lecture was in the superb Yehudi Menuhin Hall which was opened in 2006. As one would expect, the acoustics were excellent.
|The lecturer's view of the audience.|
The hall seats 300 on a 360 degree azimuth. Luckily no person chose to sit behind me but I discovered when I started my lecture that the projector was behind the screen.
The full import of this was revealed when I directed my laser pointer onto the screen and the red dot disappeared, presumably because the screen was not reflective but light-porous.
