Facilities for the deaf or hearing impaired

The LBT uses the Sennhesier audio system in both the Main Auditorium and Syngenta Cellar Theatre. For those using the system, it is simple to use, discreet and lightweight. For the hearing impaired the system provides clear sound quality for every performance and can be used with or without a hearing aid. If you would like to make use of our facilities please inform the Box Office when making your booking.

 

For our BSL interpreted shows for our Autumn/Winter 2016 season, the signer will be standing stage right so we recommend seats D-H 12-18 for the best view.

 


   
Facilities for the blind or visually impaired
Guide dogs are welcome in both venues where a bowl of water will be provided on request. If you have a sight impairment, please inform Box Office at the time of booking,  and you will be advised of the best possible seating areas.
