Hearing help for theatregoers

We understand how frustrating it can be when trying to appreciate a live performance. Because of this, we have developed our Theatre Hearing Guide – designed to help you get the most out of every show.  Simply search for any venue on our database below to find the facilities they have available for your hearing needs.  Most offer hearing aid induction loops.

Globe Theatre

Both auditoria have hearing induction loops (though due to the outdoor nature of the Globe, this can prove temperamental) as do the box office desks. Where patrons do not use hearing aids, they offer hearing enhancing headphones for no charge. Captioned and BSL interpreted performances are available for select shows.


Greenwich Theatre

A limited number of infra-red Seinheisser headsets, with or without loop, are available, and they do not need to be booked in advance.
