A Christmas Carol Relaxed Performance

This performance of A Christmas Carol is aimed at audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed theatre environment, including people with an autistic spectrum disorder or sensory or communication disorder and their families.

We aim to make the performances as inclusive as possible.

Relaxed Performances provide:

  • A relaxed and welcoming atmosphere
  • Adjustments to sound and lighting
  • The freedom to move around inside the auditorium
  • A quiet room you can visit at any point before, during or after the performance
  • Trained staff to help
  • These shows are for anyone and we encourage anyone who wishes to discuss their access requirements further to contact us on 0141 429 0022.

    We've also created a visual story to help you prepare for your visit and to get you ready to enjoy some festive entertainment in a relaxed setting. Click on the link below to download:
