Autism Friendly Pantomime Performance

This panto season Hall for Cornwall is running a Loud performance of its pantomime Robinson Crusoe & The Cornish Pirates.

In a Loud Performance the main lights remain on in the seating area, there are no loud bangs, pyrotechnics or unexpected startles and the audience can be as loud as they like (actually in panto everyone can anyway!).

It's an autism friendly performance, aimed at those on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities.

HfC is one of the first theatres in the world to offer this - with it only having been done on Broadway and a handful of other venues.

The Loud Performance is on 5th January, 7pm

Other access performances:

Signed: Dec 30th 7pm
Audio Described & Touch Tour: Dec7th Jan 2pm (touch tours 12.30pm)
