The Civic is committed to creating opportunities for audiences with disabilities and developing excellence in disability arts. This is a summary of opportunities for audiences with disabilities to attend performances and events at The Civic.

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.

There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects.

An easy way to understand the atmosphere is perhaps, 'the opposite of the quiet carriage on the train'.
