Additional Needs and Relaxed Performances

Relaxed performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed environment and include additional lighting, gentler sound effects and a friendly attitude to noise and movement in the auditorium.

If you have any concerns about special effects or show content please contact the Box Office.

Quiet Space

Prior to each relaxed performance there will be an allocated quiet space available for customers who may need a break from crowded areas or excessive noise. This space will also be available throughout the performance. Please see a member of the Front of House team on the day for more information.

Ear Defenders

We have a small number of ear defenders available which can be useful for patrons with auditory sensitivities. Please reserve a set with the Box Office ahead of your visit.

Safe Place Scheme

Hull Truck Theatre are proud to be part of the Safe Place Scheme, supported by Humberside Police.
The scheme is designed to help those who have learning disabilities or difficulties, are living with dementia or are vulnerable, to feel safe whilst out and about.
‘Safe Places’ can be identified by a sticker in the window and if you are lost, scared, feeling vulnerable or confused we encourage you to come in to the theatre so we can help you.
