Following 8 record-record breaking years in London’s West End and having played in 11 countries around the world to over 7 million people, the National Theatre’s acclaimed play WAR HORSE tours the UK from September 2017 and arrives in Salford June 2018.

The National Autistic Society will be collaborating with the National Theatre to bring a relaxed performance that is suitable for autistic people and their families. Trained staff and small adjustments made to the performance are just some of the things that will make this performance accessible for those who may find mainstream shows difficult to attend.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

Relaxed Performance: Thu 28 June, 2pm. Only available to book over the phone.

About The National Autistic Society

The National Autistic Society are a leading UK charity for autistic people (including those with Asperger syndrome) and their families. They provide information, support and pioneering services, and campaign for a better world for autistic people.

Each year, in the week leading up to World Autism Awareness Day, they encourage the public to take part in World Autism Awareness Week – a full seven days where schools, workplaces and individuals, their families and friends all over the UK are taking part in activities to raise money and awareness for The National Autistic Society.

They’ve come a long way in raising autism awareness but there’s still more to be done until everyone understands autism. They need the public’s support to raise vital funds to continue running campaigns like Too Much Information, training and sharing knowledge with professionals working with autistic people, and so much more – and that’s where you come in.

World Autism Awareness Weeks runs from 26 March – 2 April 2018. To find out more click here:
