Hull Truck Theatre have recently launched a bespoke new access guide for audiences who require additional access support. The six-page access guide includes information about the building and its facilities, the types of assisted performances offered and information about how best to access the theatre and purchase the appropriate tickets.
The development of this piece of literature is just one of the initiatives that the theatre is working on as they move towards a truly accessible offer to audiences. Hull Truck Theatre’s front of house and box office teams have undergone extensive dementia training to become part of the Dementia Friends programme. They are also part of the Alzheimer’s Society, the Safe Place Scheme supported by Humberside Police, the Breastfeeding Friendly Premises Award Scheme and Talking Tables.
Hull Truck Theatre have teamed up with local accessibility groups, including ‘Elephant in the Room’ to develop a suite of materials that are fit for purpose for those with access needs, including specific show related collateral where appropriate.
The access guide is available from the Box Office and also as a pdf download online.
