As part of the ongoing improvement to the Park & Dare Theatre, during the months of January and February we will be replacing the lift to all floors, to comply with health and safety laws and the needs of our customers.
Due to the essential works surrounding this replacement at the Park & Dare Theatre, the lift will be out of service from Tuesday 3 January until Friday 24 February 2017.
As a result, the main auditorium can only be accessed by stairs, which will provide some temporary access issues. Whilst causing short term inconvenience, this work should lead to improved access to the theatre in the longer term.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this period and thank you for your patience.
If you wish to discuss your access requirements or for further advice when booking tickets for performances taking place during this period, please call the Box Office on 08000 147111.
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.
British Sign Language Performance
Signed performances are ideal for those who use sign language. Trained British Signed Language (BSL) signers usually stand to one side of the stage and interpret the script used by the performers at the same time as it is being performed.
Open to everyone, but particularly appropriate for anyone who may find the usual theatre/cinema environment challenging, due to an Autism Spectrum Condition, a learning disability, or a fear of the dark, loud noises or confined spaces.
Relaxed Performances/Screenings provide a relaxed environment, where elements are adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and leaving and re-entering the auditorium during the performance/screening.
Designated 'chill-out' areas are provided outside the auditorium with activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.
A Touch Tour is ideal for blind and partially-sighted audiences to familiarise themselves with the set ahead of the performance.
Captions display dialogue on-screen (similar to subtitles) and also describe the audio or sound portion of a film/performance allowing audience members who are D/deaf or hard of hearing to follow the script and the action of the film/performance at the same time.
For live performances, the screen is positioned at the side of the stage.
