What do we do?
Making theatre more inclusive to those with hidden disabilities.
"The theatre has always thrived on new work and new audiences"
Sir Cameron Mackintosh
Members of the public?
We can teach you about hidden disabilities and the systems in place, in our society, that are there to help already. This includes everyday and theatre related.
Work in a theatre?
Do you want to improve the access in your theatre? You can take a look at our workshop scheme and access to the resources on our website to make your staff more inclusive. To consolidate how much we can teach you take the test and apply for your theatres review.
What is a theatre review?
Our staff will use a carefully crafted check list to analyse your theatre and award you with a gold, sliver or bronze access badge that you can show off to your audiences.

Theatre goers with varying disabilities
"I'd like to not have to wait 15 minutes each time I go to the theatre while everyone runs around trying to find someone who will be able to help me"
"I can’t tell you what a difference it makes when you come through the door and are met by someone who knows what I’m talking about."
"I've missed many touch tours because I wasn't sent the right information before hand"
