BSL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES
We offer British Sign Language interpreted performances for certain shows. When booking your tickets, please mention that you will be using this service so we are able to allocate you seats with a clear view of the signer.
Our Box Office has a portable induction loop which can be used in any space – please let our staff know if you would like us to use this. We have a permanent induction loop in our Council Chamber performance space.
For certain performances we offer captioned performances. This service may be useful for people who are D/deaf, deafened or hard of hearing
AUDIO DESCRIBED PERFORMANCES
Audio description gives additional commentary during a performance, describing things like body language and facial expressions, costume, scenery and action sequences. This service may be useful for people who are blind, visually impaired or partially sighted..
Relaxed Performances are specifically planned and programmed to welcome guests who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium and we may make some small changes to the light and sound effects to accommodate the needs of our audience. We will also provide a designated 'chill-out space' for guests who may need time away from the performance space.
We welcome service dogs and our Café Bar can provide water bowls, if required.
