Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
We have a number of ways for programming at Soho Theatre more accessible for those who have loss of sight.
We program Audio Described performances with Touch Tours beforehand. Click here to see listings – and to book for these, please contact the box office as described at the top of that page.
If you are blind or partially sighted you, and a companion, can get your tickets for a discounted price (please ask our box office team for this as it will vary).
We can reserve seats for you in easily accessible seats in all of our performance spaces, or if you’d like an usher to help guide you to your seat, just ask at the box office when you book.
Accredited assistance animals can be brought into the auditorium or left with Soho Theatre staff.
We don’t want you to miss out on anything that happens on stage. Our audio described performances give you a live commentary about the action happening on stage through a pair of small headphones.
Like a narrator telling a story, a trained describer will tell you about the things you might not be able to see, describing body language, expressions and movements, so that you can keep up with the action.
There is a live introduction which will tell you about the characters, their costumes and the appearance of the set 15 minutes before the start of the show.
To help you immerse yourself in the show as much as possible we offer touch tours before each audio-described performance enabling you to explore the stage and get a feel of the set and costumes before the play starts.
If you’d like to experience a touch tour before you come along to the audio described performance please let us know when you book your ticket so we can get everything ready in advance for you. Touch tours normally take place 1 hour before the start of the show.
