Blind & Visually-Impaired young people
Envision is a bespoke, multi-sensory theatregoing experience for blind and visually-impaired young people aged 6-18.
This stimulating full-day experience includes:
Front of stalls seats at an audio-described performance of a top London show
A 90-minute workshop led by specialist Creative Practitioners
A fully-supported on-stage touch tour, exploring the set, props and costumes
Envision can help to:
Boost students' confidence and communication skills
Provide students with new life experiences, including travelling to London and being a theatre audience member
Strengthen relationships between teachers, carers and students: Envision provides a unique bonding experience away from the classroom

We’ve run Envision experiences at Disney's The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Aladdin, Wicked, War Horse and Matilda The Musical - to name but a few!

Touch tours give young audiences the chance to handle props, costumes and explore the set before the show, to deepen their experience and understanding.
Envision gives participants the chance to meet and interact with other
visually-impaired young people from across the UK.
Envision helps to boost young people’s confidence and wellbeing through their participation in the workshop, their multi-sensory experience of the show and interaction with its creators, and the fun of sharing a day at the theatre with their peers.
