Access performance types

A British Sign Language interpreter will translate the spoken words for BSL users.

CAP: Captioned performance

Captioning displays dialogue and some sound effects as visible text on a screen or mobile device for anyone who would find this useful.

Relaxed performances welcome all who may benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability, or those with babes in arms.
