Blind or visually impaired patrons


If you are blind or have a visual impairment

We regularly have audio-described performances of our plays in the theatre. If you are blind or have a visual impairment you, and a companion, can get your tickets for a discounted price (please ask our box office team for this as it will vary).

We also offer touch tours before the audio-described performance when you will be introduced to actor’s voices, the set and the characters different costumes. If you would like to attend a touch tour, please let our box office team know when you buy your ticket.

We can reserve seats for you in easily accessible seats in all of our performance spaces, or if you’d like an usher to help guide you to your seat, just ask at the box office when you book.

Accredited assistance animals can be brought into the auditorium or left with Soho Theatre staff.

If you are blind or you have a visual impairment we don’t want you to miss out on anything that happens on stage. Our audio described performances give you a live commentary about the action happening on stage through a pair of small headphones.

Like a narrator telling a story, a trained describer will tell you about the things you might not be able to see, describing body language, expressions and movements, so that you can keep up with the action.

There is a live introduction which will tell you about the characters, their costumes and the appearance of the set 15 minutes before the start of the show.

Touch tours

To help you immerse yourself in the show as much as possible we offer touch tours before each audio-described performance enabling you to explore the stage and get a feel of the set and costumes before the play starts.

If you’d like to experience a touch tour before you come along to the audio described performance please let us know when you book your ticket so we can get everything ready in advance for you. Touch tours normally take place 1 hour before the start of the show.
