Audio descriptions & access days

We have paved the way in creating opportunities for visually impaired audiences to engage with our productions.

Visually Impaired patrons exploring the set of The Nutcracker guided by Company Stage Manager, Lily Amy.

Our unique Access Day enables visually impaired patrons to enjoy a full range of activities that enhance the enjoyment and understanding of ballet.

The day consists of a touch tour on stage to feel the set, props and costumes, an insight session introducing movements from the production assisted by Company dancers, and an audio described performance.

The performance, audio described by VocalEyes, enables visually impaired patrons to enjoy the story of the ballet and the emotion and quality of the movement accompanied by music played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
