Relaxed Performance Sunday 23 December, 3pm – all seats £13

Relaxed Performances provide an opportunity for customers who may find it difficult to come and see a show to experience the joy of live theatre.

It is still the same show but with some small changes to the sound levels, lighting and no pyrotechnics or strobe lighting is used. These performances will provide a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels.

The auditorium doors will be left open and customers, if they wish, are allowed to move around during the performance. The Dress Circle Foyer will be made into a quiet space for the duration of the show, whereby if customers need to leave the auditorium for any reason they can go to this space and relax before deciding whether to go back in for the rest of the show. For these performances there will also be an increased number of wheelchair spaces available. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact the Box Office on 0115 989 5555 to book.
