- The Very Hungry Caterpillar – 8th -18th January 2016 Riverside Theatres. Book tickets on www.hungrycaterpillarshow.com
A special Relaxed performance will be conducted for children with special needs and autism. This modified performance will be on Wednesday 14th January at 3pm and is specifically designed so that all children have the opportunity to experience the show in a safe and relaxed environment. This means that the doors to the auditorium will remain open so that children and parents can come and go as they need, house lights will remain on to provide easy access, and a chill out zone will be set up outside the theatre with a live feed so children that need to leave can still watch the show.
