Relaxed Performance

Sunday 11 June 2017, 3pm

The Royal Shakespeare Company is offering tickets for this performance at the reduced rate of £25 and £10 which can be booked through the RSC ticket hotline on 01789 403493 or in person at the Box Office.

Please note that there is limited ticket availability remaining for this performance: please call the RSC ticket hotline for updates.

Following the sold-out success of previous relaxed performances of Matilda The Musical, the Royal Shakespeare Company will present the fourth relaxed performance at the Cambridge Theatre on Sunday 11 June at 3pm.

The forthcoming performance will be the eighth relaxed performance that the Royal Shakespeare Company has staged to date across its projects, and once again The National Autistic Society and Mousetrap Theatre Projects will work closely with the RSC to offer full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities.

The performance provides a relaxed environment, with elements of the production adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around the auditorium during the performance. Designated ‘chill-out’ areas are provided outside the auditorium with soft seating and activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them.

This Matilda The Musical website has a ‘view from your seat’ function. Once you have purchased tickets for this performance, you can see the view from your seat here.



The RSC will provide all bookers with a visual story to help them familiarise themselves with the plot, characters and the setting before they arrive at the theatre. This can be downloaded here.

If you are planning to drive into the city we recommend that you take advantage of Q-Park’s Theatreland Parking Scheme – simply have your car park ticket validated at Cambridge Theatre and the 50% discount will automatically be applied when you pay at the car park pay machine. Find out more on the Q-Park website.

Alternatively, there is also an NCP underground car park in Parker Street.

Blue disabled badge holders receive one hour free parking in paid for parking bays after an initial payment is made. (For example, if the vehicle arrives at 5pm, the motorist can make a payment for 30 minutes parking and receive 1 hour free parking. This would bring the stay to 6:30pm when controlled hours end.)

Vehicles are permitted to set-down and pick-up for as long as necessary on yellow lines and in resident bays if a blue disabled badge is displayed, but must be moved as soon as the activity is complete.
