Relaxed performances are designed to welcome anyone who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment and who might be anxious about attending the Theatre for a range of reasons. 

Traditionally this has included people with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.

For each Relaxed Performance we make small changes to the staging, there is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and we have breakout areas for use during the performance. Additional resources including visual guide to the theatre and the productions are available in advance to support people who are visiting the Theatre for these performances. 

Everyone is very welcome to attend our Relaxed Performances, regardless of whether or not you 'require' the special conditions that they offer. They are an inclusive, enjoyable experience for all.

“Relaxed performances are just a brilliant idea. As a teacher I try to get my students as involved in the community as possible, no matter how complex their needs, and it's great to know that they were comfortable in the theatre and also that the theatre was comfortable with them! Theatre is exciting, and awe inspiring - and I'm so glad our students didn’t have to miss out on seeing this great show just because they might not sit perfectly quietly for a few hours...”
