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.

If you regularly require best view of caption seats, 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.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE FACILITY SET UP AND NEED A REMINDER ABOUT HOW TO BOOK, YOU CAN FIND DOWNLOADABLE INSTRUCTIONS HERE (PDF).

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.

Infra-red Hearing System

 

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 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.

 

Once you’re set up with Online Access it is the easiest and quickest way, currently offered within the city or anywhere else I know, for booking accessible tickets.
