Unfortunately our seating restricts wheelchairs larger than L1065mm x W660mm. Please get in contact with us if you do have a wheelchair larger than this so that one of our team can advise on alternative options.

Touch tours

We arrange pre-show touch tours for the majority of productions at Arcola Theatre. This would typically include an opportunity to handle key props and costume and also familiarise yourself with the staging, lighting, and sounds of the production with the Stage Manager. If you are interested in arranging a touch tour, please email us at or call us on 020 7503 1646.

Relaxed performances

A relaxed performance is intended specifically to be sensitive to and accepting of audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions or anyone with sensory and communication disorders. 

BSL (British Sign Language) Performances

These performances have a British Sign Language Interpreter onstage, interpreting anything spoken or sung. Please email if you would like to book seats in which you have a clear view of the BSL interpreters.

 BSL-interpreted/Signed performances coming soon…
