Relaxed performance means that this show has been specially adapted for families and school groups who would benefit from a more relaxed theatre environment.
The theatre lights are a bit brighter and stay on throughout the show, children and adults are free to make noise, sing along and come in and out of the theatre for rest breaks. Our staff will also be on hand to assist with seating and access throughout the show.

Our Family Ticket makes for a perfect Christmas Gift!
…if the kids’ wide-eyed reaction is anything to go by, Hatch! hits the mark…a singing, dancing tour de force.
I do not like it, I love it!
