What does a dementia friendly AND RELAXED performance involve?

Our Relaxed and Dementia Friendly Performances are specifically designed to welcome people with an autistic spectrum condition, learning disability or Dementia to experience theatre. 

These performances are for anyone who feels that they, or their family, would enjoy a more relaxed environment. They have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere to reduce anxiety levels. There is a relaxed attitude to audience noise and movement, and small changes to the sound levels and lighting effects. There are also other provisions such as visual stories, a chill-out space, and extra staff around to offer a helping hand.

If there’s another aspect of the theatre experience we could help with to make a positive difference to you, please get in touch.

There will be lots of friendly staff on hand to welcome you and help with any needs that you may have.
