Creating theatre for everyone
We have a range of facilities to meet people’s requirements at Leeds Playhouse, making sure that everyone can come to the show.
These include disabled parking at the front of the building and level access, Braille signs and lifts inside the building. Guide dogs and Hearing Dogs for the Deaf are very welcome.
Types of accessible performances
What is a captioned performance?
What is an audio described performance?
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. The description only happens in between dialogue and supplements the voices of the performers in explaining the emotions and action of each scene.
British Sign Language Interpreted
What is a BSL interpreted performance?
A Signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a British Sign Language Interpreter who stands on the stage interpreting the show for Deaf attendees.
What is a relaxed performance?
What is a dementia-friendly performance?
Accessible performances are sponsored by Irwin Mitchell
