The Watermill Theatre: Accessible Performances and Participation
The Watermill Theatre welcome you to Accessible Performances, especially designed for guests with additional needs and their companions.
Guests with additional needs are always welcome at The Watermill, to any performance, and if there is anything staff can do to make your visit more enjoyable, please get in touch.
The programme of participation activities for young people and adults with additional needs is expanding, get in touch to find out more or to share your ideas.
- Fourth Wall: project for adults with Learning Disabilities to explore a play before coming to see the production

- Scene Change: monthly workshop for adults recovering from mental health concerns

For many of us, trying something new, with new people, in a new place, can be daunting. Our familiarisation visits are a chance to meet Lixi, the group facilitator, and have a short tour of the theatre and facilities with her. If you would like to book a visit, please contact Lixi on 01635 570918 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
