All live events will be wheelchair accessible.
NEUROSTAGES is a Relaxed Festival. This means that it takes the approach of Relaxed Performance across all festival activity, both in-person and online.
Relaxed Performances were created to make watching performance more accessible by ‘relaxing’ the usual rules of theatre etiquette – they allow for noise and movement from the audience, as well as tailoring light and sound for those with sensory sensitivities.
There will be an option of high sensory or low sensory dedicated chillout spaces at CCA.
