Theatre Access Survey 2021

On the day, 17 May 2021, that theatres are permitted to re-open to the public, VocalEyes in partnership with Stagetext and the Centre for Accessible Environments, are launching a survey of UK theatre audiences who use access facilities, services or support, including D/deaf, disabled or neurodivergent people or people with long-term health conditions.

The results, and your comments and opinions, will be published in a report that will be shared widely across the sector. Help us inform theatres to what extent they are meeting or failing to meet the access requirements of their audiences.

If you are a theatre-lover who uses access services, please take the survey, which asks questions about your visits to theatres before the pandemic, your experience of theatre content online during lockdown, and how you feel about returning to theatres as lockdown restrictions are eased.

If you work at a theatre, theatre company or are connected with the theatre industry in any way, please help spread the word, and share this page with your audiences, subscribers and social media followers.

Take the Theatre Access Survey 2021 (SurveyMonkey).

A Large Print version can be downloaded at the bottom of the page. We are also in the process of commissioning a BSL video introduction.

The Theatre Access Survey 2021 is the latest in our series of annual surveys into access at arts and heritage organisations around the UK, undertaken in partnership with Stagetext and other access organisations since 2016. For more information, contact [email protected]

The survey will close on Monday 16 August 2021, 10am
