Relaxed Performance: A Strange New Space at Brunel’s SS Great Britain in Support of Bristol Refugee Festival

Relaxed Performance Bristol:

A relaxed performance of A Strange New Space, will be taking place during the show’s run at Brunel’s SS Great Britain this month.

The children’s theatre performance is taking place as part of Bristol Refugee Festival and will feature Tessa Bide. The show is aimed at children aged four years upwards with the intention of helping families understand the lives and journeys that refugees face.

The stories will feature the real-life journey of Amira, who travelled across continents in search of safety. Her tale will be performed with physical theatre, original music and puppetry.

It has been developed in partnership with The Trinity Centre, May Park Primary School, Integrate Bristol and Circomedia, with funding by Arts Council England.

A relaxed performance of the show will take place at 11am on the 10 June 2018. Relaxed performances aim to make theatre accessible to people with autism, learning disabilities, sensory impairment and social and communication difficulties. Relaxed performances will mean that children with disabilities who are unable to sit still or sit quietly will be able to experience the show without prejudice from others.

The Relaxed Performance will take place at 11am and the main performance at 2pm.

Tickets are £2.50 per adult and free for children with attendance entitling you to a discount of £2.50 off one entry ticket or £5 off a family ticket to Brunel’s SS Great Britain.
