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.
