More Information on A Festival For Our Times: A Transform 21-22 Gathering

Join us for an evening of celebration as we launch Transform’s reimagined festival for 2021-2022.

This edition will look and feel very different but with the same bold, brave, vivid and socially-conscious spirit we are known for.

Transform 21-22 is an experiment to reimagine what an international festival can look like and represent in the future. It is an invitation to artists and communities to join us in manifesting an extended festival for our times, one that is slower, more sustainable and care-led. From Autumn 21-Spring 22, this extended festival will invite audiences from across Leeds and beyond to rediscover and explore the city and connect with powerful artists from across the city and the globe.

On the night you can expect exclusive previews, pop-up performance, interventions and DJ sets as we take over the iconic site of the Tetley for an immersive evening of performance, adventure and sneak previews.

Venue: The Tetley, Hunslet Rd, Leeds LS10 1JQ

The space is fully wheelchair accessible. Please contact us if you have access requirements that we can support:

Tickets Pay What You Can – with options ranging from £0-£25. Every pound received will go directly towards realising the festival and exciting projects we are cooking up. Audiences are welcome to select their chosen ticket price based on their individual circumstances, with every £ spent in solidarity with Transform to help make the festival happen.

Captioned Performance

Open captioning allows theatre goers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

British Sign Language Interpreted

A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.

Sing Along

Singalong with the cast in this exclusive performance. Join in as loud as you like, fancy dress is optional but highly recommended.

Parent & Baby Performance

A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.

Booking Fees:

*A transaction fee of £2.50 will be applied to all phone and internet bookings.
