Listening Assistance

Listening Assistance

Listening Assistance is available in all our venues for the majority of events. We have two different types of equipment available.

  1. Over ear headphones*: using an infrared system to amplify sound – these headphones can also be used for audio description if available.
  2. Induction loop*: transmits audio signals straight to your hearing aids when hearing aids are set to the T-position. 

To use our listening assistance service, contact a member of the front of house team on arrival who can provide the headphones free of charge and demonstrate how to use the service.

*We recommend booking a seat located centrally for these devices to receive the clearest signal. Please note that these devices do not work in the boxes at the Connaught Theatre.
