What Are Relaxed Performances?
Relaxed performances are informal concerts designed for youth who have autism, sensory communication disorders or learning difficulties. A ‘chill-out’ zone is provided for distressed children and includes fidget toys and stress balls; volunteer staff are briefed on how to help children with their special needs; chattering and shouting are fully accepted without any worry about etiquette.
