Audio Description 

Audio Description is a live commentary of what is taking place on stage and a description of anything visual, whether it be an entrance or action of a character, a set change or a lighting feature.

Audio description is a service for visually-impaired or blind people, who listen to the commentary through headsets, which can be collected on arrival at the theatre.

Before an Audio Described performance, audience members can attend a Touch Tour, allowing blind and visually impaired people to familiarise themselves with the set and costumes of the production.

There is an Audio Described performance with accompanying Touch Tour for the following shows:

  • Peter Pan
    – Wednesday 18 December  7pm
    – Touch Tour 6pm
  • The Suicide
    – Wednesday 4 March 2020  7.30pm

    – Touch Tour 1.30pm
  • Miss Julie
    – Sunday 8 March 2020  2.30pm
    – Touch Tour 1.30pm


You will need a ticket for both the production and the Touch Tour.
