We want everything we do to be accessible to all our audiences, and are looking for ways to break down barriers so more people can enjoy theatre at its best.
Tales for Winter access information
Tales for Winter: Your Place or Ours is our series of online and in-person events live from the Royal Shakespeare theatre throughout December 2020 and January 2021.
Captioned versions of The Boy in the Dress: A Celebration and of Festive Tales will be available from the Wednesday after the performance, when we will email you with a new link to the videos with captions. We’re unable to provide a captioned version of Troy Story but we hope to be able to release a captioned version at a later date.
Let us know when you book if you have any access requirements on email@example.com or 01789 331275. We'll make sure that those with disabilities have seating appropriate for their needs.
Arriving at the theatre
Enter through the Swan Theatre end of the building. There are steps and wooden doors from Waterside, or level access just around the corner on the end of the building. Please note, there is currently no step-free access to the circle level. Public lifts won’t be in operation during your visit.
Perspex screened areas will be available throughout the building for audience members who need to read lips. Please make yourself known to staff if you need to use this service.
