Guide Dogs

If you'd like to bring your guide dog into the auditorium, let us know when you book yor ticket. We can offer you an aisle seat, and let you know about any special effects that might affect your dog. Alternatively, you can leave your guide dog with our front-of-house staff.

Audio-Described Performances

Audio description is a live commentary interspersed with the actors' dialogue. This is relayed via a headset linked to the infra-red audio system. There is a short 'programme notes' session, before the production, which explains the atmosphere, costumes, characters and action. Programme notes are also available on CD in advance.

Touch Tours

We offer a free touch tour for every audio-described production, usually before a matinee. You can feel the set, props and costume and familarise yourself with the voices of the actors and audio describer. Let us know if you need a member of staff to accompany you. Guide dogs are welcome on set.  

To join a touch tour, phone 020 7452 3000.
