Relaxed Performances

At all of our performances we have a relaxed attitude to noise and movement, but we also provide some specifically ‘Relaxed Performances’ which along with this have adjustments to lighting and sound as well as a breakout area available. These performances are designed to welcome anyone who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment and who might be anxious about attending the Theatre for a range of reasons.

Everyone is very welcome to attend our Relaxed Performances, regardless of whether or not you require the special conditions that they offer. They are an inclusive, enjoyable experience for all.

We have a visual guide to the theatre, to support anyone visiting the theatre for a workshop, event or performance. We also have additional information available about the full details of our performances and this is available in advance of the performance by emailing michelle.darwin@burnleyyouththeatre.org
