York legend Berwick Kaler will be dusting off his frocks and making his much-anticipated, triumphant return to panto to star in Dick Turpin Rides Again this Christmas!

We’re lifting the curtain on…

Relaxed Performances

If you have learning or sensory disabilities, or care for someone who does, you’ll understand how difficult it would be to attend a regular theatre performance.

With lighting effects, loud noises and large crowds, stage shows can seem really overwhelming. But at the Grand Opera House York, we believe everyone should be able to experience the magic of theatre.

Relaxed Performances provide the exact same production as a typical audience would enjoy, with an atmosphere and attitude in the auditorium that makes everyone feel safe and comfortable.
