For those with hearing difficulties. An infrared hearing system is fitted in the Thameside Theatre. This allows people who are hard of hearing to enjoy the full range of sounds in the theatre. This is done by wearing a small receiver which is about the size of a packet of cigarettes. The sound can be heard either through your own hearing aid (using the T setting) or with a pair of walkman style headphones. Loan of the equipment is free and available from any member of the theatre staff.
The Thameside does not currently offer signed or described performances.
