Relaxed Performances

We invite you to join us for carefully adapted performances for people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects. Families and schools welcome.
