Summer Access London Theatre out now

First Published 21 April 2016, Last Updated 27 April 2020

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

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.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
