PFT is committed to making its theatre programme and other activities available to as many different people as it can.


Dementia-Friendly and Relaxed Performances

These performances are specifically designed to welcome people with an autistic spectrum condition, learning disability or dementia to experience theatre.

These performances are for anyone who feels that they, or their family, would enjoy a more relaxed environment.

What’s different and what’s involved in these performances?

These performances have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere to reduce anxiety levels. There is a relaxed attitude to audience noise and movement. We make small changes to the sound levels and lighting effects and there will be extra, trained staff on hand to help and assist you.

To purchase tickets or for more information, please call our Box Office on 01796 484626 or visit our online information page.

If there’s another aspect of your theatre experience we could help with to make a positive difference to you, please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
