Why accessibility is important to us
At New Adventures we believe that art should be accessible to all. Below are a few simple ways to help support you to view our website in many different ways to suit your needs, as well as how we aim to produce and deliver accessible performances and workshops.
How to adjust your computer to make websites easier to see and use
There are some changes you can make to your computer to make any website, including ours, easier to see and use on your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. Below are some useful resources to help you do this. You can also take a look at My Computer My Way a resource developed by AbilityNet with support from Microsoft and the BBC as a source of accessibility help for all computer users. This unique resource explains all the accessibility features available in popular desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, including Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android and Windows Phone. All of these devices have features that enable people to adapt their computer to suit their needs, such as changing the colours and text size or using voice activation.
Take a look at My Computer My Way to find out more about what features you could be using.
If you have dyslexia, or difficulty reading content:
You may find that changing the colours on screen, using larger text, or using a different font, will be helpful.
The following links describe some ways you can adjust your device:
If you have a vision impairment:
You may find content difficult or impossible to read onscreen.
A free option, which is built into the majority of devices, is the ability to zoom in on content. On a computer, this can be done in your web browser by holding down the control key (ctrl), and then using the mouse wheel to zoom in and zoom out. Keyboard users can do the same by using ctrl and + to zoom in, and ctrl and – to zoom out.

Accessible performances & workshops
New Adventures is dedicated to producing and delivering performances and workshops that are accessible to all patrons and participants. How we aim to do this is outlined below:
When touring our productions we encourage the venues that we work with to promote, where possible, how their establishment is accessible for those with different requirements. By contacting the venue or visiting their website you will hopefully be able to see how they can be accessible to you.
Alongside our general performances we aim to schedule touch tours and audio described performances at each venue, in partnership with VocalEyes. Please contact your local venue where we are performing to find out more.
We aim to provide a wide-variety of high-quality and inclusive workshop experiences that cater for those of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to find out more.
