On Wednesday 11th January, service users at One Trust were invited to a complimentary relaxed performance of Dick Whittington at The New Wimbledon Theatre starring Arlene Phillips, Mathew Kelly and Tim Vine. The performance was specially adapted with a relaxed atmosphere and adjusted sound and lighting to accommodate individuals with sensory impairments, disabilities and autism. The Learning and Development Team at the theatre also provided us with a ‘Visual Story’ beforehand, so that individuals who had not been to the theatre before knew what to expect of the building and the performance.

One Trust would like to say a huge thank you for the opportunity to the New Wimbledon Theatre. Theatres and interactive productions can be a daunting prospect for many of our service users, but the thought and consideration given to the additional needs of our group by the New Wimbledon staff ensured that the performance was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.
If you would like to see what productions are coming up at the theatre, or get in touch with their Learning and Development team regarding relaxed performances, their box office can be contacted on 0844 871 7627 or through the following link; http://www.atgtickets.com/venues/new-wimbledon-theatre/
