For many of our LinkAble families, they would love to go on family trips to theatre shows in London but there are just too many issues that make this impossible. Which is why we're pleased to have now signed up with Mousetrap Theatre Productions!
Mousetrap Theatre Productions run a number of Relaxed Performances especially for families with one or more children with special needs. Their performances are designed to provide an opportunity for people with autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who require a more relaxed environment to enjoy an evening out at the theatre. They do this via adjustments to sound and lighting, free support resources to help families prepare for the visit, trained volunteers and staff available to help at the event as well as a ‘Time-Out’ area with a screen streaming the onstage action. Previous performances have included The Wind In The Willows, Mamma Mia! and Shrek The Musical with new ones always announced on their website - http://www.mousetrap.org.uk/index.php/special-educational-needs/relaxed-performances.html along with recommendations of other performances with better accessibility.
We hope these performances will be a great opportunity for many Linkers to have an enjoyable and accessible evening out!
If you would like to make a booking, then you will need to follow the instructions on the Mousetrap website (click here) and make sure you quote our Organisation Reference Name - LinkAble and our Organisation Reference Number - 780.

Happy theatre going!
