We are introducing our first Baby Friendly performances for Ladies Unleashed (Fri 7 Oct 2022, 11am) and Mumsy (Fri 10 & Fri 24 Mar 2023, 11am), making theatre accessible to new parents.
We hope that parents, carers and families with babies can still enjoy a trip to the theatre and these performances are aimed at adults with babies under 18 months.
We want to make sure your visit is as warm, welcoming and hassle-free as possible. If at any point during your visit there’s something you need or anything missing that could help you and your baby relax, please just let us know and our staff will do our best accommodate your request.
There will be a relaxed atmosphere during the performance, including additional lighting throughout the show and the freedom to stand and move about, feed and change nappies as much as you need to. We’ll be making some changes to the sound of the show, reducing any loud noises, but we don’t expect the same from your baby!
Our Interact room on the first floor will be a baby-friendly space with drinking water, changing tables, nappies, wipes, bottle warming facilities and a play area, plus a live stream of the production so if you do have to step out of the show, you won’t miss anything.
We’ll also have additional changing tables available both inside the theatre during the show and in the male and female toilets.
There will be an attended pushchair/pram park where you can safely leave your wheels, whilst car/carry seats can be taken with you to the main seating area.
We are Breastfeeding Friendly throughout the venue and drinking water is available in the public areas and will also be provided in the seats during the interval.
A full range of hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks, alcoholic beverages and lunch menu will be available to purchase from the café bar by our local caterers, Shoot The Bull. High chairs are available in the café and public areas.

Seating is unreserved for these performances, just book the number of adult tickets required (Adult tickets £19.50, under 18 months go FREE) and on the day we will ensure that each baby has at least one empty seat next to it for space for nappy bags, carry seats etc.
On the day feel free to sit wherever you and your baby would like. Although we’ll start at the advertised time, don’t worry if you’re running late on the day, you’ll be able to take your seat whenever you arrive.
We will publish the running time of the show on our website a week before the performance, and it will be included in a pre-show email you’ll receive 24 hours before attending.
Parking is available at St Stephen’s Shopping Centre next door to the theatre and is accessible via lift.
These are our first Baby Friendly performances and we want to learn what we’re doing well and how we can improve. If there’s more information that you need to plan your visit, please talk to a member of staff, or email email@example.com.
We’ll follow up with a post-show questionnaire and would be grateful for your feedback.
