Audio Described Performances

Audio description is a form of audio-visual translation that use the natural pauses in dialogue and critical sound elements to provide a live verbal commentary through a personal headset. All of Derby Theatre's in-house productions have audio described peformances, as well as some touring productions. 

Touch Tours

Touch Tours enable you to explore and familiarise yourself with the stage, props and costumes prior to attending a performance. Touch Tours are free and take place 75 minutes before an Audio Described performance starts. Booking in advance through Box Office is essential.
