A route map will be available to all audience members (online and hard copy) outlining the route, sensory and practical information (toilets, busy roads, noisy areas) as well as links to support for survivors and potential activists. You can see examples of these on our city pages (London / Edinburgh).

There will be a wheelchair accessible route with areas that may be difficult to navigate marked on the route map.

Audio based descriptions of the site-based illustrations are built into the audio experience. Unfortunately, we do not have audio description available for our route maps. We recommend that you attend with a friend that you know and trust. If you require assistance navigating the route, please email us at

A short video of the route will be available 48 hours in advance.

We offer free tickets to carers and personal assistants.

In some locations, a quiet space is available for use by the audience in advance of or after they experience Niqabi Ninja by Sara Shaarawi.

Details for BSL interpreter & Captioned experiences are below.
