What does a dementia friendly performance involve? 
We believe that people living people living with dementia should be able to enjoy live theatre with friends and family, but appreciate there may be some challenges surrounding a visit to the theatre. 
For this special performance we will consider everything from sound and lighting cues, stage action and seating plans, signage and refreshment services to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. There will be lots of friendly staff on hand to help if you need any assistance during your visit. You’ll be free to leave the auditorium at any point during the show if you need a break and we offer extra flexibility when booking seats, so if you need a little extra personal space, you can request the seat next to you remains unsold. 
If there’s another aspect of the theatre experience we could address to make a positive difference for you, please get in touch. 
This performance is open to everyone who embraces the idea of a dementia friendly community where people living with dementia are supported and valued. 
Please note: the dementia friendly performance cannot be booked online. Please call 0843 208 6000.
