Relaxed and Sensory Adapted performances

Perfect for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment – including those with an autism spectrum condition or learning disability.

Relaxed and Sensory Adapted performances

Relaxed performances

What's different?

  • the lights in the audience will be up so that 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 
  • We make small changes to the lights and sound (such as taking out strobes lights) so that the performance is more accessible if you have sensory sensitivities.


The National Theatre provides a limited number of Relaxed performances, and our forthcoming Relaxed Performances are listed below:

We do not have any Relaxed performances currently scheduled

 

Parent on Relaxed Puppetry Workshop: ‘They're great. It allows the children and young adults with additional needs to really feel confident and safe. To completely enjoy themselves without being judged. They’re facilitated in feeling more able in themselves.’

Sensory Adapted Performance
