Information for audiences

Here’s some information for you if you’d like to attend Enliven: Stories of Strength:


All performances are relaxed which means those watching are free to make noise, come and go as they please, move around within the public areas and there’s no need to join in.

We won’t provide seating except for what exists in each location already. Each performance lasts between 15 & 30 mins and you will be encouraged to stand and watch.

There will be a first-aider and security on the day to help the audience.

There will be an information point (a gazebo) at each location where you can find out more about what’s going on.

Strong Lady Productions’ Strong Enough has an easy read document and film explaining the performance. It will be British Sign Language interpreted.


Puppets with Guts’ The Lips will have surtitles so everyone can sing along with the lyrics if they want to. At the end of the show confetti canons will be released alongside red smoke.

Each show and event contains music which will be at a level where people can still hear each other speak.
