More for people with learning disabilities

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities.

We are proud to have pioneered relaxed performances at Leeds Playhouse. They are integral to our commitment to our audience members with learning disabilities and their champions.

Relaxed performances are supported by our Access Partner Irwin Mitchell.
