Sydney Festival ensures that its venues are as physically accessible as possible. Designated wheelchair spaces (where available) are sold at the lowest price in the house for that performance. For access information on specific venues visit each venue page.
Many venues have an induction hearing loop system or FM radio system available. Visit our venue pages for more information.
AUSLAN INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES
Auslan interpreted performances are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan). Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate the text and dialogue into Auslan, signing live. Audiences requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
This acclaimed Irish variety show melds high art and trash culture in a disorderly cocktail of partying and politics. With an all-star cast including famed drag queen Panti Bliss, RIOT is a dazzling blend of dance, drag, circus, comedy and powerful spoken word.
Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent, Meriton Festival Village
