As part of Aylesbury Waterside Theatre’s commitment to accessibility and theatre for all, the venue has announced their support of the Sunflower Lanyard scheme. Launching to coincide with Learning Disability Week Mon 17 – Sun 23 Jun the sunflower lanyards are an initiative enabling those with a hidden disability who may require additional help to be easily recognised and assisted as needed.

Following a social media post in April highlighting the theatre’s relaxed performances as part of Autism Awareness Week, a patron came forward with feedback on how customer experience could be improved for those living with autism. Andy Rotherham from Aylesbury mentioned the sunflower scheme and also how the theatre could benefit from having quiet areas for customers needing a quiet space pre-show and during the interval. As well as implementing the lanyard initiative which signals to theatre staff that a customer has a hidden disability hence enabling appropriate care and support to be delivered in a non-intrusive manner, furniture has been moved in the venue allowing for two quieter breakout areas in Circle 2 and on the Promenade to be utilised.

In the UK 700,000 people live with autism, 1 million have learning disabilities, 850,000 have dementia and 11 million people have some sort of hearing loss. Hidden disabilities include, but are not limited to, dementia, autism, learning disabilities, anxiety issues, mental health impairments and hearing loss. The Waterside is in good company with the sunflower lanyard scheme which is already being used in airports including Gatwick, Heathrow, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Inverness, as well as in supermarkets, Sainsburys and Co-op.
