Audio described

Audio described (AD) events are similar to listening to a cricket or football match on the radio, having the action described to you. You’ll hear an explanation of what’s happening on screen or on stage during gaps in the dialogue and sound effects.

We offer audio description on a number of selected theatre performances and screenings.

Our listings are available in large print and audio CD from our Box Office, please email access@homemcr.org or phone 0161 200 1500 with any enquiries.

To reserve an AD headset please email access@homemcr.org or phone 0161 200 1500.

Please note, film audio description is provided by film distributors. Some distributors (Warner Brothers for example) have a policy of providing AD for all their films. Other distributors may never deliver this service. When it is provided, HOME will ensure AD is available on all screenings for that film.
