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.

We try to work with accessible venues so that everyone is able to access performances and events that we produce.

For Autumn 2018 we will have the following accessible performances available:
*Knot will be captioned using the Difference Engine
*Plink & Boo performances will be relaxed plus are suitable for D/deaf & hard of hearing audiences, and audiences with EAL
*Moon have a touch tour for visually impaired audiences before each show, plus the performances will be audio described and will use BSL


To book a wheelchair user’s ticket for one of our events, or to talk to us about your access needs, please email ellie@strikealightfestival.org.uk
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 an free essential carers ticket please email ellie@strikealightfestival.org.uk.  These are not available to book online and are available for some of our shows.

There may be 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 ellie@strikealightfestival.org.uk with any questions.
