What’s on, Disabled Access Day 16 March 2019

Saturday 16 March is Disabled Access Day, a chance to celebrate good access and to try something new.

Here’s a little taste of what’s audio-described that day…

In London, the Donmar Warehouse is holding a Disabled Access Day event from 11 am and we’re audio-describing Berberian Sound Studio there at 2:30 pm, touch tour 1 pm.

For song and poetry and heart and guts, the matinee performance of Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II, in the candlelit beauty of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at 2 pm (touch 12 pm), certainly delivers.

Or why not head to the Wellcome Collection from 11 am, for a multi-sensory experience that promises to encompasses tours and discussion, movement and vibration, smells and spices, curious objects to handle and memorable dreams to reflect on. Whatever you decide to explore, their team of knowledgeable visitor experience assistants are ready to show you around.

Alternatively, why not visit an icon of London? As part of their Disabled Access Day event, St Paul’s Cathedral has two free audio described tours at 10:30 am and at 1:30 pm.

In Wolverhampton, Macbeth is audio-described at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, at 2:30 pm, touch tour 12:30 pm.

In Leeds, Northern Ballet’s Victoria is at the Grand Theatre and Opera House at 2:30 pm, touch and insight tour 12 pm.

In Dartford, you could spend the afternoon with a group of ordinary ladies who achieved something extraordinary; Calendar Girls The Musical is audio-described at the Orchard Theatre at 2:30 pm, touch tour at 12:45 pm.

See the full list of audio-described events on 16 March.

But don’t worry if you’re busy on the 16 March, there’s still lots of audio-described performances, tours and exhibitions to choose from!
