Blind and Partially-Sighted

Audio-described performances offer a live commentary via a discreet headset.
 

Touch Tours on stage

Most audio-described performances are complemented by a Touch Tour. These offer blind and partially-sighted audiences the opportunity to gain an impression of the stage setting, costumes and props by walking around the stage and meeting cast members prior to a performance. For further details, contact the Box Office.

Touch Tours happen an hour before the show starts.

 

Relaxed Performance

Designed for adults or children who might find it difficult to sit quietly and still for an entire performance, or who are uncomfortable with sudden lighting changes or loud noises. Extra spaces have been made for wheelchairs.

For these performances we have designed a Social Story explaining what happens during a show. To download please click here.

 

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

The Playhouse is fitted with an infra-red hearing system. We offer British Sign Language interpreted performances throughout the season. Headsets are also available to offer amplified stage sound for use with or without hearing aids. These can be pre-booked with the Box Office. We are planning to introduce Captioned Performances in 2013.
