Cryptic is committed to ensuring we provide an open and accessible experience for our work. It is important to us that our website, other digital and social media, printed resources and, of course, live events, can be experienced and enjoyed in the best possible way. We follow best practice guidelines and toolkits in planning and delivering our events and are continually looking for ways to improve. We welcome your feedback;  if you have any questions please get in touch by emailing Caroline Thompson @

Events and Performances

You are always able to book tickets for our events in person, online and by telephone. We offer discounted tickets for disabled patrons and free tickets for their carers and personal assistants, and work closely with our partners to offer a range of facilities to make your visit more enjoyable.

You will be always be able to find out about venue access including: accessible parking, drop off points, entrances, ramps and lifts, wheelchair and mobility scooter provision, assistance dogs and more on the event or performance webpage.



Our website has been designed to be as easy to use as possible. However, there are some simple changes you can make to your desktop computer, mobile phone or tablet to make any website, including ours, easier to use.  The BBC have a great guide which includes:

  • Making text larger
  • Using a different font
  • Changing colours
  • Using screenreaders
  • Using your keyboard instead of a mouse
  • and text-to-speech features

You can also access all of the BBC’s ‘How To’ guides here

When we produce print, we:

  • aim to use text that is at least 12 point, and always use a Sans Serif typeface;
  • use black text on white or other clear contrasting colours;
  • avoid essential information being placed over images and contact details are always displayed;
  • use plain English.

If you require large print, easy read pdfs, Braille or audio-described versions of any of our printed materials, they are available on request by contacting Aimee Adam @
