Relaxed and Chilled Performances

Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with autism spectrum condition, sensory processing difficulties and/or communication disorders, or those who have additional needs. They are also dementia friendly.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement, some small changes made to the light and sound effects, and an open door policy so you can move freely in and out of the auditorium with a chill out space available. Visual Stories are also made available ahead of your visit to help you familiarise with the production.

Chilled performances have a casual approach to noise and movement in the auditorium, but the performance itself is unchanged.

Touch and Glow

Chilled Performance | Fri 1–Fri 24 Dec

Paint with light.... Fill a whole wall with colours and patterns at the touch of a screen... Hold a leaf on a living plant to make a sound...

Feeling curious...?

Then come out of the cold and into our fun immersive multi-sensory zone to dive into this unique electronic colouring adventure around the world.

A delightful moment in time for children to share with their grown-ups during the frosty season. This is a hands-on piece made especially for 0–5s but fun for the whole family.

Two dancers dressed in purple costumes are moving across the space. There are snowballs being thrown through the air.

Snowed In

Chilled Performance | Wed 13–Sun 17 Dec

Four friends wake to find they are completely snowed in, and a magnificent adventure unfolds in this playful, interactive family show. Our friends dream up an incredible imaginary hotel. A place where magical dances and stories are discovered. A topsy turvy world where adults are nowhere to be seen.

Touch Tours

Audiences with autism spectrum condition may also be interested in our touch tours, which offer tactile introductions to the set, costumes, props and instruments. If you think this would be useful, please get in touch with our access team who can arrange this wherever possible.
