General Event Access Information
Here are some great resources that give an overview on making your event more accessible and explain how you can do it.
Captioning Your Event
Listed below are links to different captioning services that you could work with in order to provide captions at your event. Providing captions will make your event more accessible to D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
Signing Your Event
Listed below are links to different BSL (British Sign Language) Interpreting Services that can interpret at events. Providing a BSL Interpretor will make your event more accessible to D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
Making Your Event Accessible to Blind Audiences
There are two main services you can offer to blind audiences when making your event more accessible. Below you can find out more from VocalEyes about adding Audio Description and Touch Tours to your event.
Making Your Event Relaxed
Changing certain aspects of an event will make it more accessible to nuro-diverse audiences, many of these changes can be made with little to no additional costs. These resources explain relaxed performances and how you can adapt your show to be suitable.
It is important that you inform Brighton Fringe of your venue’s accessibility.
By law you are expected to provide optimum accessibility around the limitations of the space. Refer to the Disability Discrimination Act at www.legislation.gov.uk
This year, Brighton Fringe will be recognising Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyards and encouraging Brighton Fringe venues to do the same. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is a discreet way for adults and children with hidden disabilities to show that they need additional support or just a little more time.
