Relaxed Screening (Autism Friendly): Bite-Sized Ballets/ Tortoise & The Hare

Once upon a time there was a speedy Hare who would never stop talking about how fast he could run. Sick of being teased for his slowness, Tortoise challenged him to a race. No one thought he could win, but life is full of surprises!

Northern Ballet’s Tortoise & the Hare races on to the big screen as part of our fantastic season of interactive ballets for children, narrated by Anita Rani.

With playful characters and spellbinding music, this adorable ballet is sure to have your little ones dancing with excitement!

What is a relaxed screening?
Relaxed events are designed for people  with autism spectrum conditions and their families so they can enjoy the arts together in a stress-free environment. These events are also suitable for people with sensory conditions or learning difficulties.

For this event, we will keep the cinema lights on low and turn the volume down a little. There will be no trailers or advertisements before the film starts and you are welcome to move around the cinema if you want to. A separate chill out space will be provided if you need some time out of the screening.

Our access programme is supported by:
