Access

 

Here at Tara we aim to be accessible to everyone, from the design of our building to access facilities for our productions. 

 

 Audio Described

Audio Described performances give you a live commentary about the action happening on the stage through a pair of small headphones. It is perfect for anyone who finds it difficult to see the details of a performance to still enjoy the whole production.

We also offer touch tours before each Audio Described performance enabling you to explore the stage and get a feel of the set and costumes before the play starts.

 

 British Sign Language

During a British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreted performance an interpreter stands on or at the side of the stage, clearly visible to the audience, and interprets the spoken word and sound effects for Deaf patrons who use BSL.

Please ensure you tell the Box Office you are booking to use the interpreter and they will seat you appropriately.

 

 Captioning

Captioning converts the spoken word into text that provides people with hearing loss access to live performance.

In captioning, the words appear on a screen at the same time as they are sung or spoken with the character’s name or any sound effects specified. In a similar way to subtitles in television or film.

People who want to improve their English may also find captioning useful.

 

Touch Tours

Touch Tours for visually impaired patrons are available before Audio Described performances. Touch tours introduce blind and partially sighted visitors to the arrangement of the stage and help participants to engage with the ideas, props and costumes. Please contact the Box Office for more information.
