Relaxed Performances

Published November 12, 2013

Relaxed Performances allow adults and children with autism, learning disabilities, or sensory and communication disorders to enjoy theatre shows without having to worry about making a noise, moving around or leaving the auditorium. Everyone can just relax. The performance has a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels. An easy way to describe the feel is ‘the opposite of a quiet carriage on the train’.

We can also offer ticket holders of Relaxed Performances additional resources to familiarise themselves with the venue and production.

Tomas didn’t like books or stories. He was happier clambering in the mountains like a goat or tobogganing with his Dad. That was until the Unicorn Lady came to town and reeled him in with her irresistible magic tales. I Believe in Unicorns is a spellbinding and moving story by one of our greatest storytellers.
