Summer Access London Theatre out now

Published 21 April 2016

The summer edition of London’s leading guide to assisted performances, our very own Access London Theatre brochure, is out now with details of close to 100 audio-described, captioned, signed and relaxed performances taking place over the next four months.

The free publication makes it easy for theatre fans to view many of the assisted performances staged across the capital collated in one place. Available in numerous formats, it’s an invaluable source of information for those who find it difficult to see or hear what is happening on stage during a theatre performance, as well as individuals with autism and other learning disabilities who could benefit from a more relaxed environment when seeing a show.

The new edition covers the busy summer season from May to August and contains an eclectic mix of shows on offer, from family classics to exciting new writing and Olivier Award-winning hits. To make booking for an assisted performance as straight forward as possible, each listing contains details of price, a short description of the show and up to two ways you can book.

In the centre of the guide you’ll also find a handy Venue Access Guide, which provides key information about access facilities at more than 75 London theatres, including contact numbers and email addresses, locations of disabled toilets, information for wheelchair users and even how many steps there are to each level of the theatre.

The brochure is free of charge and is available in print, on CD and in Braille. To order a copy, please call the Society of London Theatre on 020 7557 6700 or email

Alternatively, you can download it as a pdf here or access the audio-described listings in rich text format on our Access page. You can also download the Venue Access Guide section as a standalone PDF here.

To keep up to date with all the latest access news and to make sure you’re informed of newly announced assisted performances that haven’t made it into the brochure, sign up to our free monthly Access Bulletin.
