Relaxed Performances

What is a Relaxed Performance?

VillaGaiety is committed to providing performances that allow everyone to experience the wonder of theatre. Relaxed Performances are open to all, however, designed to welcome visitors with a disability or sensory sensitivities, their friends, and families to the theatre and offers the following:

  • Lights in the auditorium are kept low so it’s not too dark
  • You can make noise during the show
  • You can come and go as you please
  • If you need a break there are chill-out areas in the foyer/bars
  • Small changes are made to the lights and sound (such as taking out strobe lights and loud pyrotechnics) so that the performance is more accessible if you have sensory sensitivities

Who is a Relaxed Performance for?

Relaxed Performances are open to anyone, although structured specifically for those who would benefit from a more relaxed environment. This can include, but is not limited to, people with autism, sensory sensitivities, Tourette's syndrome, learning disabilities, or dementia, as well as people living with anxiety or people who have experienced trauma.

If you would like any additional information in the lead-up to your visit, please contact VillaGaiety on 01624 600555 during business hours.
