Audio Enhancement & Hearing Loop

Infra-red Audio Enhancement is available for the hard of hearing in the main auditorium and for all film screenings. The equipment is available from Box Office and can be used with or without a hearing aid.

A Hearing Loop is installed.

Our Infra-red Audio Enhancement and Audio Description headsets work better in some of our Main House seats than others. Use the map below to inform your booking choice if you’ll require this equipment.

What is D/deaf?

We use the term D/deaf to incorporate all people with significant hearing impairment. According to SignHealth: The Deaf Health Charity

“The word deaf is used to describe or identify anyone who has a severe hearing problem. Sometimes it is used to refer to people who are severely hard of hearing too.

We use Deaf with a capital D to refer to people who have been deaf all their lives, or since before they started to learn to talk.”
