Theatre is a wonderful form of art that can inspire, entertain, and educate us. But for some people, going to the theatre can be a daunting or stressful experience. That’s why we are excited to announce our new partnership with the London Coliseum, one of the most iconic and prestigious theatres in the UK.

Our app, Picturepath, is designed to make venues more accessible and welcoming for individuals with additional support needs, such as autism or anxiety. By providing visual guides that show what to expect before, during, and after a visit, Picturepath helps users to plan and prepare for their trip, reducing anxiety and enhancing enjoyment.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the magic of live theatre without stress. That’s why we are working with the London Coliseum to create detailed and personalised visual guides for their venue. Whether you want to see the stunning production of Swan Lake, the enchanting Magic Flute, the thrilling Jenufa, or the re-imagined Spirited Away, you can use Picturepath to discover the venue and facilities in advance.

We are proud to partner with the London Coliseum, which shares our vision of creating inclusive environments where everyone can thrive.

Jenny Mollica, English National Opera’s CEO (Interim), says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Picturepath app to help make the London Coliseum a more accessible venue for all. As the largest theatre in the West End hosting a variety of different shows, from opera to ballet, concerts and musicals, it is a priority for us to ensure that audiences feel prepared for their visit, so that their experience at the theatre is as enjoyable as possible.”

Picturepath is easy to use and completely free for users. You can download it from the App Store or Google Play and set up your profile in minutes. You can also discover other venues that are using Picturepath, such as museums, cinemas, and restaurants, and explore new places with confidence.
