Relaxed Performances

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.

I Believe In Unicorns
From the book by Michael Morpurgo

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.
