The Belgrade Theatre is committed to being accessible and welcoming to all. We aim to make your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible.
We strive to hold as many access performances as possible at the Belgrade Theatre. You can search for these performances using our “Access Enhanced” filter on our What’s On page. Once you find a show you would like to come and see, click “View Times & Book” for the list of performances.
If one of these is an access performance, it will be marked using the following abbreviations next to the performance date.
AD – Audio Described Performances: Live verbal commentary given through headsets to assist visually impaired and blind patrons.
BSL – British Sign Language Interpreted Performances: Signers usually stand to one side of the stage and interpret the dialogue being performed to benefit patrons who use sign language.
CAP – Captioned Performances: Subtitles appear on display on either the side of the stage or via a mobile device for deaf or hard-of-hearing patrons.
RP or CH – Relaxed Performances or Chilled Performances: These performances are slightly reformed to take out or reduce strobe lighting and loud noises, but the content within the show is usually unchanged. The auditorium doors will remain open, and the house lights will be dimmed. Making noises during the performance will not be discouraged, and patrons can freely enter and exit the auditorium whenever they choose.
Some performances have unreserved seating and chill-out spaces for anyone who may become overwhelmed by the performance. These performances are designed to benefit patrons on the autistic spectrum, make involuntary noises, or anyone looking for a more relaxed atmosphere.
We have also developed our own Access Register scheme to understand our disabled patron’s access needs before their visit and allow them access to carer tickets. For more information about the Access Register and how to join, please download the Information Sheet and accompanied Application Form from the bottom of this page. Screen-reader compatible versions of both documents can be provided on request.
We kindly ask patrons to join the register before booking tickets to allow us to offer them the best accessible seating available. Also, tickets for carers cannot be amended retrospectively.
The Belgrade Theatre now accepts the nationally recognised Access Card to make access to our theatre easier. Please show your Access Card to a member of our Box Office team when handing in your completed Access Register application form and to any other staff member if you require further assistance with your access needs.
Please get in touch with Box Office by phone on 02476 553055 or email at email@example.com if you require assistance finding an accessible performance or seating to meet your needs.
