Tell me about Audio Description and Touch Tours

We provide accessible performances for all Main Stage Nottingham Playhouse Company Productions.

Audio Described Performances
A live verbal commentary providing an explanation of the visual information that Blind or partially sighted people may need to understand and enjoy the show, delivered to the audience member via a personal headset.

Touch Tours
Touch tours enable Blind and partially sighted people to explore the stage, set, props and costumes before seeing the show. Touch Tours are free and take place 1 hour before the Audio Described performance starts. Please advise Box Office if you would like a Touch Tour when you book.

Assistance Dogs are always welcome: please advise the Box Office when booking.
