Improved accessibility features

1 August 2021

Did you know our website is now more accessible?

You can now find a 'high contrast mode' switch at the bottom of each page on our website, changing the grey-on-white text to a high contrast white-on-black - this can help make the site easier to read for people with a variety of visual impairments.

Improving the accessibility of our website was one of the outcomes of the work we did with Ben Lunn, composer and trainee artistic director of Hebrides Ensemble, looking into how we can make our work more welcoming to disabled audiences. His work focused on neurodivergent audiences but touched on accessibility in many areas and we will be reflecting on further changes we can make to better serve all our audiences as we return to live performance this autumn.

Ben will be presenting his work in this area at the Classical:NEXT conference in Rotterdam this September.
