D/deaf, Deafened and Hard of Hearing

Theatre captions are similar to television subtitles and convert spoken word in to visible text that provides those who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing with access to live performances.
British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted performance feature an interpreter who describes the production for those who are D/deaf, deafened or hard of hearing. This is done using gestures, facial expressions and body language.
You are welcome to bring your assistance dog into both The Heron and the Studio Theatres. Please inform the box office staff, when booking, so that we can seat you appropriately. Alternatively, our front of house team are happy to dog sit for you.

If you regularly require seats with the best view of caption screen or best view of the BSL interpreter, we would love to show you how to book them online, yourself. Call the box office on 01482 323638, or email boxoffice@hulltruck.co.uk, and we’ll set this function up and give you some simple instructions.

Infra-red Hearing System

Our infra-red hearing systems can be used to amplify and adjust the volume of the show, for anyone who is hard of hearing.

 

STETHOSET
The receiver is worn, like a stethoscope, in the ears with the Sennheiser logo facing away from your body. Both the volume and the balance can be adjusted by the wearer. 

INDUCTION LOOP
The receiver is worn around the neck, like a necklace, with the Sennheiser logo facing away from your body. Both the volume and the balance can be adjusted by the wearer. The receiver can be used with most T-Loop compatible hearing aids or with in-ear earphones/over-head headphones that have a standard aux connection if you would like to provide your own. Alternatively we do have earphones and a small number of headphones available.
