SEN Theatre

Don’t like loud noises or dark rooms, clapping or loud speaker announcements or just feel uncomfortable walking into new unfamiliar places?

Would you like to go out and enjoy theatre as a family without the stress and worry of a meltdown and no-one understanding?

Do you know someone with Special Educational Needs who would love to access theatre, films, events or workshops specifically designed to be aware of their needs?

We are very excited to announce that the Blakehay Theatre with Weston-super-Mare Town Council are compiling a grant application to be able to bring regular events and performances to the theatre specifically designed for children and families with Sensory and Special Educational Needs!

Unfortunately the theatre was unsuccessful in a grant application in 2018/2019, and then after we had submitted our new application in January 2020, it was suspended in April 2020 due to the lockdown. However we will not give up and as soon as we can we will try again, to hopefully be able to bring you SEN Theatre from October 2021.

All information about the process and how we are getting on will be updated on this page so please check back for updated information.

Please share this information to anyone you feel would benefit from dedicated regular events for families and children with SEN, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

If you would like to find out more about being involved please contact;
