WIN a Theatre Experience!

WIN an OXSIGHT theatre experience and backstage pass to the new ‘& Juliet’ musical. OXSIGHT & Henshaw’s are collaborating with Opera House Manchester to allow those living with a visual impairment to experience the art of theatre, the first of many accessibility experiences that are being launched in the area.

OXSIGHT glasses are designed for people with peripheral vision loss, sometimes known as tunnel vision. The glasses use intelligent image interpretation technology and algorithms to enhance and increase the quality and field of vision.

Sound a bit confusing? Watch our video below and see them in action.

James Laird, who has Retinitis Pigmentosa and under 5% vision, describes seeing Jersey Boys at the Opera House in February.

“Incredible…it was the first time, in a long time, that I could track what was going on, see more of the body language and the tension building up.”

Glasses won’t benefit? Don’t worry!

We are also giving away the chance to experience the show with a backstage touch tour and audio description. 


Enter your details below to be entered into a draw to WIN a theatre experience, with the option to use OXSIGHT glasses (if benefit) or experience touch tour and audio descriptive performance.
