We are pleased to be able to provide audio descriptions for our autumn 2021 tour.
Co-written by former Northern Ballet Premier Dancer Pippa Moore and VocalEyes, these audio descriptions offer a unique insight into our productions and bringing our performances to life.
You will hear descriptions of the movement, action and drama on stage with music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
15 minutes prior to the performance, you will hear pre-show notes which describe the set, props and costumes via your headset or audio description device.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering visually impaired patrons access to a free Insight Talk in place of a traditional Touch Tour.
Our listings below let you know where and when our Audio Described performances and Insight Talks will be taking place.

'I didn’t know what to expect but the music and description gelled really well together. I was enthralled with it — it was as if everything else around you didn’t exist.'
