For many blind or partially sighted concert-goers, a touch tour is an essential part of the experience, providing them with extra sensory detail in order to enhance their enjoyment and understanding of the concert that follows.
We are delighted to report that Ian Brignall, BPO Concert Manager, will lead a 30 minute Touch Tour prior to our concert on Sunday 12 November, explaining the layout of the orchestra and the instruments and how they will be utilised in the concert that follows.
Participants will be escorted onto, and guided around, the stage by Dome staff, allowing them to explore the space, talk to some of the musicians and familiarise themselves with their instruments.
If you, or someone you are attending the concert with, are blind or has a visual impairment, tickets for the Touch Tour are free of charge but must be booked in advance. Please contact Brighton Dome Ticket Office on (01273) 709709 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
