Location

Situation

This project concentrates on two main areas: broadening our appeal to audiences who present a particular challenge for us and supporting those who face challenges when making a visit to the theatre. We’re supporting teachers facing budgetary and timetable restrictions to facilitate trips, programming work with a specific focus ages 14+ and extending our access programme to include SEN schools and those children outside the autistic spectrum who need support with theatre visits.

Solution

Our newly extended artistic programme offers regular productions for all age ranges. Our extensive access provision is committed to introducing new initiatives including relaxed performances and in-house audio description training to aid inclusion. Our schools brochure covers the whole of the academic year to help with classroom planning and we run Continuing Professional Development (CPD) days to enable teachers utilise our comprehensive on-line resources to support theatre visits.
