Choosing an activity for a night out can be hard enough at the best of times, let alone if you’re living with any kind of long-term health condition which will need considering. It can be really difficult to make plans without knowing how your body will react, and feeling comfortable and secure is key to enjoying any sort of night out!
One great idea for a night out where you can make it work for you is an evening at the theatre. This is a low-energy, high-reward way of experiencing fantastic stories, amazing visuals and even seeing famous actors in the flesh – and you can take measures to make sure it’s the ideal night for you. Most theatres now are really upping their accessibility game, so if your condition requires any extra assistance – or if you’re currently in a wheelchair – it’s well worth calling them up before to let them know you’re coming. They may have special seats, offer comfort cushions, access to hidden toilets, and plenty of other considerations that will make your night as stress-free as possible.
Of course, you also need to pick a show that you will enjoy! There are thousands of options out there, depending on what town you live in, and lots of shows go on tour so it’s worth checking around different dates to see what show is in town. The West End is also full of amazing shows, and there’s something for everyone. If you’re struggling with what to pick, you can use the infographic below to help narrow down your choices based on a fun series of questions to match your personality to a show!
