Subtitled Screenings

Each season, a selection of our films will be caption subtitled. Caption subtitling is a service that makes our film programme accessible to our Deaf/deaf and hearing-impaired customers by displaying additional auditory information on the screen.
Find out more about Caption Subtitled screenings here >>

Our film programme also contains many films subtitled into English from other languages. These may also be suitable for our Deaf/deaf and hearing-impaired customers, but won’t include additional descriptions of sounds.

Audio Described Screenings

Each season, an audio description track will be available for a selection of our films. Audio description is a service for partially sighted or blind people, and is similar to listening to a cricket or football match on the radio – the action is described to you.

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed performances allow people with learning differences and special needs to enjoy the show without having to worry about moving around, leaving the auditorium, or making a noise. These performances are available for a number of our long-running events, including our annual winter family show. For more information feel free to telephone Anna-Ruth on the number at the top of the page.
