Peter Pan | Dementia Friendly Performance.
The Courtyard’s annual panto is back and this time, for the first time ever, it’s…. PETER PAN!
So take the second to the right and straight on till morning and hook up with the boy who never grew up! You don’t have to believe in fairies but an exciting adventure awaits audiences of all ages in a magical and spectacular pantomime.
Adapted from the original by J.M Barrie and by arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital and Samuel French Ltd. £1 per ticket goes to GOSH.
WHAT IS A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE?
As the first Dementia Friendly arts venue in the UK, The Courtyard is proud to offer people living with dementia, their families, friends and carers a carefully tailored performance in an environment that is comfortable and supportive so that everyone can enjoy the wonder of the pantomime.
We consider everything from sound and lighting, seating plans, signage and refreshment service. We offer extra flexibility when booking seats, so if you know you need a little extra personal space you can request that the seat next to you remains unsold. A quiet room outside the auditorium is also available if you need some time away from the crowd.
WHY DEMENTIA FRIENDLY?
We know from speaking to people living with dementia that it’s easy to become isolated and to not do things which you previously enjoyed. We hope that by making some sensitive adaptations to the theatre experience, we can welcome you back to The Courtyard or encourage you to try visiting us for the first time. Our aim is to create a dementia friendly community, where people living with dementia are valued and supported. We are proud that over 150 Courtyard staff and volunteers are now Dementia Friends, and have turned their understanding of dementia into action.
