We regularly hold Relaxed Performances welcoming individuals, groups and families with children on the autistic spectrum, sensory and communication disorders, a learning disability or anyone who may be afraid of the dark.
Relaxed performances have an informal atmosphere and allow people who may need to move around, make a noise or take a break the chance to see a show without worrying.
The auditorium lights will be brighter and adjustments will be made to the show such as the removal of loud noises and bright, flashing lights.
We can provide a visual story tool to anyone feeling curious or anxious about visiting the theatre. Please let our Box Office know if you would like to receive this.
There is limited parking at the Discovery Centre. Use Tower Street for alternative parking.
We can provide a visual story tool for patrons with an Autistic spectrum condition, learning disability or a sensory or communication disorder and who may have not visited the venue previously.
