Relaxed Panto Performance

We are continuously working towards making the Watergate accessible for all and so we are very excited to announce that we will have our first ever Relaxed Performance for Aladdin on Sunday 7th January at 6.30pm!

What is a Relaxed Performance?

Everyone is welcome to attend the Relaxed Panto Performance but the performance is specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance.

We have taken a number of steps to adapt the theatre environment to make the theatre experience more accessible for everyone:

  • We will open doors 45 minutes prior to the performance start time for audience members who would like to become familiar with their surroundings before the performance starts.
  • Our Technical team adjust the sound and lighting to reduce sensory stimuli to ensure the performance is comfortable for all.
  • Strobe and flash lighting will be removed.
  • Loud/unexpected sound effects will be removed from the performance.
  • House lights will remain on at a lower level throughout the performance.
  • Audience members are free to walk in and out of the auditorium as they need to.
  • Audience members are welcome to bring sensory tools.
  • Service dogs are also welcome, to ensure we allocate the most suitable seating in the auditorium please book directly through the box office on 056 7761674 or contact Sarah at
  • We have put together a preparation journey document which gives detail of what you can expect once you arrive at the Watergate.
  • If you would like to speak to a member of the team about your booking or if you do need further information, you can contact Sarah at or call the box office on 056 7761674 Wednesday to Saturday from 2 – 6pm.
