Kaleidoscope is a series of events and annual festival for people living with a learning disability or difficulty.

Once a month Storyhouse’s Garret Theatre will be transformed into a club for accessible raving. Expects DJs, Silent Disco headsets and performances from live bands. The bar will be open for drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) plus snacks.

Full accessible toilets are on the same level with a Changing Places on the ground floor.

No strobe lighting will be used.

Tickets can be bought in advance or with cash on the door. Free essential companion tickets are available for support staff (however many you require) if you are signed up to our access register, which you can do here.
If you need any help with your booking, please contact our ticketing team.
You can also download an easy-read information document about the club nights here.

The Club Nights are a project by Storyhouse and The Peoples Choice Group
