Z-access Family Fun Day at Z-arts, Manchester 8 March 2020 Tickets from £Free but spaces need to be booked — Book now

Z-access returns to Z-arts this March! The team at Z-arts work hard to make it’s vibrant, family friendly programme of theatre and art as accessible as possible to all. This annual event is especially created for families with access needs and aims to celebrate and promote inclusion.

The event is a jam packed fun day where the whole family is welcome. It isn’t just a one off nod to accessibility though – it’s designed to encourage families with disabled children to come and feel comfortable in the space and then return for more events and shows throughout the year. The day will celebrate diversity and inclusion with a host of interactive activities, including dance, music, and crafts.

Throughout the day there will be a team of trained facilitators, staff, volunteers, and a BSL interpreter on hand to ensure that everyone’s needs are met. There will also be a sensory room and a dedicated time out space if you need to take a break at any point during your visit.

Z-arts are also keen to use the day to hear from families about how they feel accessibility in the community could be improved. So let them know either on the day, on social media or in their email surveys.

Zoe Pickering, Head of Programming and Big Imaginations Manager at Z-arts, says;

“Z-access days are designed to be as welcoming as possible for all. We hope that they provide a great introduction to Z-arts for families, and that they then feel able to return for even more shows and activities. Accessibility is important to everyone here at Z-arts and we are working to make sure that we are a safe and welcoming space for everyone.”

Head to the beating heart of Hulme on 8th March and join in what promises to be an uplifting day of music, art and inclusion.

Z-access is suitable for all ages and is free to attend, but booking is still required.
