Everyone is welcome to attend a relaxed performance, where there is a completely relaxed attitude towards any spontaneous noise, people needing to move around, or reacting to what they see or hear on stage.

The informal atmosphere can be particularly suitable for anyone who would feel more comfortable in this environment. This could include parents with young children, people with sensory or communication needs and people living with dementia.

They will usually involve small modifications such as keeping the house lights on low, softening any lighting or sound contrasts in the show, a quiet space if people need to have a break, and having extra front of house staff on hand to help.

Each performance will have detailed information on how it has been adapted so the audience can decide whether it is suitable for them. Talk to the box office if you need more information before you decide to book.
