Relaxed Performances

These performances are open to everyone but have been specifically adjusted to create a safe and welcoming environment for people who benefit from a more relaxed environment – this could include people with autism, sensory sensitivities and/or learning disabilities, as well as those living with anxiety or who have experienced trauma.
