An opportunity for neurodivergent children and adults to enjoy the orchestra in a sensory-friendly environment. With a more relaxed approach to concert-going, the aim is to minimise patrons’ anxiety and ensure they have a calm, enjoyable and safe concert experience.

A guide will be prepared for each performance with descriptions of what to expect at the concert. This is a great way to ensure patrons get the most enjoyment possible from the experience.

Relaxed concerts offer an open door experience where audiences are free to move in and out of the performance at any time. Chill out spaces are also available within the venue.

While every effort has been made to ensure these events are supportive of sensory needs, there are factors outside of our control, such as numbers of participants, and audience noise levels.
