The Seagull is committed to providing accessible performances suitable for those with additional needs. These performances are “relaxed” in the sense that lights are kept on and there is no expectation of silence from the audience. In a relaxed performance there is the freedom to move around, leave and return, and generally express yourself. These are often suited to those with Autistic Spectrum conditions, those with dementia or those with hyperactivity conditions.
The Seagull hosts the majority of its events from other companies, and therefore is not always able to insist that accessible performances are available. However we have committed to ensuring that our Christmas show always includes an accessible performance. We also regularly seek to programme performers who are willing to include accessible performances and advertise these as such in our brochure.
If a particular event is not advertised as accessible, but you wish to find out whether the performance might be suitable for someone with additional needs of any kind, please contact us for further information.
Support for the Hearing Impaired
We regularly seek to programme performances which include closed captions or BSL interpretation. In each programme we aim in include at least one such event.
Please contact the box office to enquire about the upcoming events.
