HOW DO I FIND OUT ABOUT ACCESS FACILITIES AT THE THEATRE?

ARE THERE FACILITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS?
THE LION KING regularly schedules audio described performances for those with visual impairments in association with Vocal Eyes. Audio description in theatre is a live verbal commentary on the visual elements of a production, delivered as a performance unfolds, through a discreet headset.
Guide Dogs are welcome in the auditorium or can alternatively be left in the care of theatre staff. If you intend to bring a guide dog, please let your sales advisor know at the time of booking.
The Lyceum Theatre has a limited number of large print and Braille programmes available. Please contact the Front of House Manager in advance on 020 7420 8100 to request a copy.
A copy of THE LION KING script is available in braille and an appointment can be made to read it in the theatre by calling 020 7420 8100 in advance.
ARE THERE FACILITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH HEARING IMPAIRMENTS?
THE LION KING regularly schedules sign-interpreted performances in association with Theatre Sign. Throughout the performance, a qualified theatre sign interpreter stands on the left of the stage and uses sign language to relay music and words to deaf and hearing impaired patrons, all of whom are seated within easy viewing distance of both the stage and interpreter.
We regularly schedule captioned performances of THE LION KING in association with STAGETEXT. Captioning is a way of converting the spoken word into visible text that provides deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people with access to live performance.
