Babes in Arms Performance

The Nest
25 Nov 11.30am

Here at the Young Vic we’re opening our doors to those with little ones. 

If you’re a parent or a carer with a baby under eighteen months we have an extra performance just for you.  

The actors will be aware that there may be additional noise from the auditorium and the house lights will remain up throughout. You’ll be welcome to move about the space should you need to settle your baby.    

There will be space for buggies to be parked.  Baby changing and milk-warming facilities will be available.   

This performance is open to everyone but specifically designed for audience members with babes in arms.

amplification system

The Young Vic has an infrared amplification system for use by patrons during performances. Headsets can be collected from our Front of House team upon arrival at the theatre.

Please let us know when you book if you want to take advantage of the system.

The box office counter has an induction loop service.

About speech-to-text transcription (STT)

STT is similar to live subtitles.  A highly-trained professional uses a specially designed phonetic keyboard and software to transcribe the actors’ words verbatim.  The text will appear on the caption unit slightly after it is spoken.

About Relaxed Performances 

Relaxed Performances welcome people with learning disabilities and/or sensory and communication impairments. During the show, audience members should feel comfortable making noise and moving around as and when they need to in a friendly environment.
