Strike A Light are working towards becoming more accessible, particularly in the work we programme for our festivals. We are part of Battersea Arts Centre’s Collaborative Touring Network and have been working with Unlimited Impact to improve our accessibility for our audiences. This is an ongoing process and feedback is always welcome.

We try to work with more accessible venues so that everyone is able to access performances and events that we produce. If you would like further information on any of of our venues and the barriers some may face then please get in touch.


For Spring 2019 we will have the following accessible performances available:
*Juliet & Romeo will be captioned using the Difference Engine
*Kaleidoscope performance that will be relaxed and specifically for children with SEN (special educational needs)


To book a wheelchair user’s ticket for one of our events, or to talk to us about your access needs, please email Jess on info@strikealightfestival.org.uk.

Apologies but due to limited capacity and fire regulations in some of our venues we have limited space for wheelchairs, so we highly recommend letting us know in advance of your visit, if you are bringing a chair.
If you require a free essential carer/companion ticket please email info@strikealightfestival.org.uk.  Unfortunately these are not currently available to book online.

We apologise for any restrictions on access at different venues due to health and safety regulations and fire regulations.

Gloucester Guildhall: If in doubt, please email us, or telephone Gloucester Guildhall on 01452 503050 and we will be happy to discuss your visit.

Strike A Light Festival welcomes assistance dogs.

Any use of flashing lights / strobing in performances will be made clear to audiences prior to the performance.


If you would like to view our programme in an accessible, downloadable PDF format, please bear with us and we’ll have this very soon. Alternatively, email info@strikealightfestival.org.uk with any questions.
