Covid-19

  • This message goes out to our audio describers all over Scotland, and of course to our valued vision-impaired patrons (VIPs).
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has left the theatres, opera houses and museums closed, leaving a gap in our lives which was once filled by the magic of audio described live performance.
  • Nobody can say for certain when the venues will re-open, but we will keep you informed of the dates of any rescheduled performances when they do.
  • In the meantime, we encourage all of our members and VIPs to follow the advice of both the UK and Scottish governments with regards to self-isolating and social-distancing.
  • We also encourage our audio describers to read the government advice with regards to protections and support for self-employed and contractual working. More information is available here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a-grant-through-the-coronavirus-covid-19-self-employment-income-support-scheme
  • If you need any further support please contact us through the email address on this website and we will do our best to address any concerns you might have.
  • To fill the entertainment gap, don’t forget that audio description is available on TV channels, DVDs and other accessible entertainment platforms.
  • We appreciate your understanding in these unprecedented circumstances. Please look after yourselves and your loved-ones and we look forward to seeing you all when things are back to normal.
