Guide to Access

Many theatres, cinemas, museums and art galleries are striving to meet the needs of blind, partially sighted, Deaf and hard of hearing audiences through the use of audio described, BSL interpreted and captioned services. More and more venues are also exploring the use of relaxed events for those with sensory or complex communication disorders.

It is true to say that these specialised services only operate at very specific times, which means that they are not available at every single performance but we hope our website can provide you with all the knowledge you need, to find the right performance for you.

If you would like to find out more about how accessible shows operate, click on the relevant link on the side. You will find a full description of how these shows work and, where possible, some examples to show you.
