Accessibility at the fringe
We are committed to being an inclusive festival, where everyone can enjoy what we have to offer.
This is why the Fringe is delighted to continue working with our Official Accessibility Partner, Equal Dreams. We hope that through our collaboration, we can make our festival and its related information accessible to as many as possible, including people with disabilities.
Note: This page will be updated as the situation with COVID-19 evolves. We advise users to check back on this page closer to the festival to be updated on any changes.

Mobility & Escort Assistance
If you have difficulty walking, require wheelchair access, or require an escort to meet you at a central meeting point to take you to the venue, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org when you make your ticket bookings. We will make the necessary arrangements for your needs.
Accessibility Features for Live Performances
We are working with our featured artists to provide accessibility features for performances. These may include: Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) interpretation, open captioning, audio descriptions, live note-taking, and so on. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com so that we can share more about these features with you.
Speech to text interpretation for the post-show dialogues are available upon request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome assistance dogs at our Fringe venues! Please contact us at email@example.com when you book your tickets to let us know that your four-legged friend will be attending the performance with you, and we will make the arrangements to cater for your needs.
We will provide a quiet space outside the Esplanade Theatre Studio and NAFA Studio Theatre. This space is for you to take a break from the crowd and the performance space if you need to give your senses a break. Due to COVID measures, we are not able to provide sensory toys in the space. You are encouraged to bring your own stim toys.
We regret that a quiet space is not available at the Esplanade Annexe Studio due to the venue layout. We would very much like to welcome users who require a quiet space to join us at the Fringe events at the Esplanade Theatre Studio and NAFA Studio Theatre.
