Access at GDIF
GDIF welcomes all and endeavours to be accessible for everyone!
We have worked with our artists and team to consider access at every stage of the process. Our friendly team of staff and volunteers are available for assistance and have been trained in Disability Equality. All shows and sites are relaxed and we invite audiences to feel at home in our company.
Access on site:
All shows are wheelchair accessible and we welcome Access Dogs.
Viewing areas with chairs will be available if needed.
Accessible toilets are available at some sites and marked on maps.
Most events will be BSL interpreted or captioned.
There will be additional access content online, including: BSL interpretations, audio description and Easy Read. Access information for each show can be found at on event pages on our website.
