The Palace Theatre has announced that the performance of Aladdin at 5.30pm on 30th December will now be a relaxed performance, making the show accessible to an even bigger audience.

The relaxed performance sees elements of the pantomime toned down – no pyrotechnics or loud bangs are used, the house lights remain on during the performance and audience members are able to make noise and move around the auditorium should they need to. There will additionally be a quiet break out space available for anyone requiring it. These changes are intended to make the pantomime enjoyable for those on the autistic spectrum, those with learning difficulties or a sensory/communication syndrome.

Audience Development Manager for the Palace, Harriet Wright said “we’re thrilled to be offering this opportunity that will enable even more people to enjoy the pantomime magic. Panto is such a great experience for the whole family but we know that if one family member struggles with sensory stimulants for whatever reason, it can make coming to the theatre seem too overwhelming for them and in some cases also mean that the rest of the family chooses not to attend either. Panto is already a slightly more informal theatre experience than most shows but a relaxed performance allows us to take that several steps further, opening up a brilliant festive tradition to people who don’t otherwise feel able to attend.”

Aladdin runs from 7th – 31st December with tickets for all performances, including the relaxed performance, available from the Box Office in person or via 01636 655 755 or online at
