At Theatre Royal Stratford East, we’re committed to our local community and to making the theatre accessible to everybody. Click here for an audio version of our season brochure.
The theatre has a spacious foyer and a wheelchair-accessible box office and toilets. There are six wheelchair spaces in the auditorium and lifts to the upper level.
Assistance dogs are welcome in the auditorium. Please inform Box Office when you book.
Hard of Hearing
We have an infrared assisted listening system in the auditorium
Our accessible performances are made possible thanks to the support of Canary Wharf Group.
Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing people access to live performances.
Audio description is a live verbal commentary via headphones on the visual elements of a production as it unfolds for blind and partially sighted people. Click here for an audio version of our season brochure.
One hour before an audio-described performance, blind and partially sighted patrons are invited to interact with the set, costumes and props and gain a detailed description of what’s on stage. Book your space in advance.
Sign language interpreted performances for Deaf/deaf British Sign Language Users
These performances are designed to welcome people with an Autism Spectrum, sensory or communication disorder or learning disability and allow movement in and out of the auditorium and there is less emphasis on the audience being quiet during the performance.
