Hearing dogs are welcome in the theatre. We can offer seats on the end of the row to make your visit easier. Please inform Ticket Office when booking your ticket and ask for information on any special effects that might affect the comfort of your dog during the production.
Hearing Enhancements and Headset
There are induction loops at the Ticket and Reception counter and Cafe Bar counter.
For enhanced enjoyment for people with hearing impairment and for people who use hearing aids, an infra-red audio system is available throughout the Main House and Studio.
Advanced booking of headsets is available from the Ticket Office, where headsets can also be collected before the performance or simply turn your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.
Feel free to talk to one of our Ticketing and Reception Assistants on 029 2064 6900 about your requirements so that we can offer you the best possible seat.
What is a captioned performance?
Captioning is a way of converting the spoken word into visible text, that provides people with a hearing loss with access to live performance. Captions produced by a computer and a display unit installed on or near the stage enable people with a hearing loss to understand what is said when it is said. A captioned performance is delivered live by a captioner trained by STAGETEXT.
STAGETEXT provides open captioning. This is a form of universal access enabling people with a hearing loss to enjoy theatre on an equal basis with their hearing peers. Open captions also include sound effects and offstage noises.
