We stage a number of 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. Babes in arms are also welcome to relaxed performances.

We can 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.
