Lighthouse in Poole has announced two Autism Friendly performances this Autumn/Winter.
These performances, which are also referred to as Relaxed Performances, are open to everyone but the environment has been specifically adapted for families with children with autism, individuals with sensory and communication impairments, those with learning disabilities and anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.
If you require support to access a performance from a carer or personal assistant, Lighthouse offers a complimentary ticket for the support companion.
