"Sadlerís Wells Theatre has been working alongside VocalEyes to provide described performances for a number of years. VocalEyes are always our first point of call for all audio-described related access needs and have consistently shown a high level of dedication and commitment to providing support throughout the process from the initial contact, to arranging the performance description, confirming their description scripts, arranging all the details of the accompanying touch tours and even following up on performances to pass on thank yous from patrons and notes to help improve the provision and content of dance theatre for those requiring audio-described performances. They have been invaluable in providing insight to the specific requirements of their patrons and have even gone so far as to provide loaner equipment when numbers of attendees for the recent West Side Story exceeded our in-house provision.
The staff at VocalEyes have uniformly been friendly and helpful and all the staff involved in audio-described performances have benefitted from their involvement.
