We provide Audio Described performances and Touch Tours for all Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company productions in our theatre auditorium.

Audio Described Performances

These performances include a live, verbal commentary providing an explanation of the visual information that Blind or partially sighted people may need in order to understand and enjoy the show, via a personal headset.

Digital Show Programmes are available for Nottingham Playhouse Productions (for enlarging text or to use with a screen reader).

Touch Tours

Our 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 one hour before the Audio Described performance starts. (Please note the Touch Tour for A Tale Of Two Cities will take place from 6pm – 6.30pm before the performance). Please let our Box Office team know if you would like a Touch Tour when you book.

Assistance dogs are always welcome – please inform the Box Office team in advance of your visit.

Those who require a companion to enable their visit will receive a second ticket for free. Please book via the Box Office on 0115 941 9419 if you require a companion ticket.

If you have any questions, please contact the team by emailing access@nottinghamplayhouse.co.uk or call the Box Office on 0115 941 9419.
