After months of promise, the autism-friendly performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are finally heading to the West End.

At the start of this year, we were promised some autism-friendly performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Dates for when these performances are coming to London’s West End have now finally been set.

Put a date in your diary for August 23 and August 24. Rather than being billed as an autism-friendly production, the two dates are going to be “relaxed performances.” This means it’s suitable for all those who have learning disabilities.

These types of performances are set to have inclusive options that help to take out the overcrowded setting and overwhelming feeling of both the show itself, and the experience outside of the theater.

There will be adjustments made to both the lighting and sound, while also offering “chill out rooms” for people to escape to if things really do get too much. Comic-cons are starting to offer more “chill out” and “quiet” rooms because they have been called for when it comes to inclusivity, so it’s not surprising that theaters are following in the same direction.

Staff at the Palace Theatre will also receive special training. The theatre has teamed with the National Autistic Society to ensure all the correct steps are taking to create a relaxing and positive atmosphere for all.

There will not be as many tickets available for the two performances as normal. This is to further help create a positive atmosphere for all. The two parts of the play are also spread out over the two nights, so you’ll need to get tickets for both August 23 (for Part One) and August 24 (for Part Two). You can visit the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child access site for more details.
