Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are open to anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment. This may include children, young people and adults with neurodivergence such as autism, learning disabilities and other sensory or communication needs.

A number of adaptations will be made to the show to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable environment for everyone, including:

  • Changes to the show’s lighting and sound.
  • Elements of surprise reduced to a minimum.
  • A relaxed attitude to movement and audience responses during the performance.
  • A quiet space available before, during and after the show.
  • Extra staff on hand to support audiences during their time with us.

A pre-show information pack will be made available to audiences before their visit, including a visual story for our theatre, details about the performance and other ‘good-to-know’ information. Example packs for previous Relaxed performances can be found below:

Billy Elliot the Musical Relaxed Performance Information Pack
Dear Santa Relaxed Performance Information Pack
The Wizard of Oz Relaxed Performance Information Pack
(and Communication Sheet)
The Owl Who Came for Christmas Relaxed Performance Information Pack 

Familiarisation visits are also available by request. Please e-mail our Box Office team on [email protected] for more details, and to book your visit.

Access performances at Curve are kindly sponsored by Voco Leicester and David Wilson Homes.
