Accessibility at Theatre503

We are in the process of reviewing how best we can help our creatives to their best  work and how our audiences are able to access that work. This page will be updated as we move towards reopening. We also recognise that every individual is different and as such what we offer may not be right for them. We hope that our relative small size means we can respond to individual needs wherever possible.

Our current focus is delivering our 503Studio: Writers Programme. Below is a little more information about how the programme works.

Delivery

We currently offer the 503Studio: Writers Programme online via Zoom. While it is our intention to deliver some of this programme in person in the future, we are committed that the main programme of courses, masterclasses and open talks will be always available online to ensure we can reach as many people in the country and around the world.

  • Each session can be delivered with live captioning through Otter.ai on request
  • Should anyone require BSL interpretation please also let us know through the 503Studio: Access Form
  • Any relevant materials can be made available in advance, and in Word or another format where required for any assistive technology.
  • We know that not everyone is comfortable interacting on Zoom, so we won’t ask you to turn on your camera or microphone on if you don’t want to.
  • There will be a 503 team member in each session who will look after the chat and/or any other issues you may have during your time with us

Please fill out our 503Studio Access form if you have any requests, as well as anything we haven’t covered on this page, or feel free to call us on  020 7978 7040 or email 503studio@theatre503.com.

Affordability

Our Share the Drama scheme means we are committed to offering at least 25% of our places for free or at a subsidised rate, to those who are long term unemployed and/or in receipt of benefits. We are also aware that the current C-19 pandemic has impacted more people than ever and will do our best to accommodate where we can. We allocate places based on need and, where possible, focus on those who live and work in Wandsworth. To apply for one of these places, please fill out our Share The Drama Bursary Form.

We also offer all our Open Talks and How To… sessions as Pay What You Can. 

We are always seeking ways of working better as an organisation, and rely on candid and open feedback from everyone who works with us and comes to see our work, so please do let us know by phone, email or via our forms if there’s something else we might have missed or should be aware of.
