Captioned performances

Captioning is a way of converting the spoken word into visible text that provides deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people with access to live performances along with their family and friends. Our captioned performances are also aimed at those whose first language is not English.

We will have a captioned performance for all Bridge Theatre productions and a block of seats is reserved to ensure a good view of the caption box or boxes. Captioned shows are provided by STAGETEXT.

Hearing enhancement & headsets

We have an innovative digital radio frequency system for assisted listening and audio description. Our Sennheiser radio receivers give you access to assisted listening and, at certain performances, audio description.

Devices are available to be collected from the theatre cloakroom with headphones or induction neck loops. You may also use your own headphones.

How To Use
1. Plug in your headphones or induction neck loop.
2. Make sure that Channel 1 is selected for audio
enhancement or Channel 2 for audio description (only
available at certain performances). Channels can be
selected via the central button on the device.
3. Adjust your volume via the dial.

Hearing dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome in all spaces of the Bridge Theatre. Please let us know when booking so that we can arrange an aisle seat for you and tell you about any loud noises or special effects that might affect your dog’s comfort. Alternatively, you can leave your dog in the care of our hospitality team.

In the case of an emergency, if it is safe to do so, we will try to reunite a dog with its owner prior to evacuating the building. If this is not possible, staff will bring your dog to the appropriate assembly point.

Free synopsis and cast list

We offer a free synopsis and cast list to all bookers of captioned performances.
