Autism Friendly Events

Autism Friendly Performances

Our Autism-friendly performances and screenings are designed to ensure that individuals with an Autistic Spectrum Condition and additional needs can enjoy the leisure pursuit of coming to the theatre to enjoy live performances and film screenings in a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.

We have provided autism awareness sessions to employees and our volunteer stewards, and have a dedicated Duty Officer Assistant for relaxed performances, to help make your visit as smooth and as comfortable as we can.

Adjusted to reduce the amount of sensory input before, during and after a performance, these performances offer:

  • No adverts or trailers before a film screening
  • Reduced sound levels in the auditorium
  • No music in the foyer
  • No unnecessary tannoy announcements
  • Higher auditorium lighting
  • Dedicated quiet room for rest and relaxation
  • Visual Social Stories to accompany your visit to the Castle Theatre
