This screening has closed captions and BSL interpretation. This is a relaxed screening, which means it’s ok to arrive late, move around, make noise, or leave the screening and come back if you need to.
If you have any questions about accessibility or you need support to access the event, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be volunteers trained in access at all Fringe! events if you need support with access on the day.
Mask wearing as an act of solidarity
At this screening we are encouraging mask wearing as an act of solidarity. We want to make immunocompromised people feel comfortable and are prioritising that for this screening. We’ve also reduced capacity so people can be distanced during the screening. If you don’t have a mask, we will have some on the door that you can use.
