Many of our venues are compatible with the hearing loop system. A hearing loop can assist the hearing impaired by boosting the sound of the performance through their hearing aid. Different venues have different access. Here are a few of our venues that incorporate the hearing loop -
Sydney Lyric Theatre (NSW) - Hearing Loop is accessible in some Stalls seats. Please see map for more information and turn your hearing aid to T for reception.
Capitol Theatre (NSW) - Hearing Aid Loop is accessible in the majority of theatre seats; turn your hearing aid to T for reception. View hearing loop map here

Either headsets or a neck loops (for those with a T-switch) can be obtained from the cloak room. Please proceed to the cloak room or see a member of their Front of House team on arrival at the venue.

Arts Centre Melbourne (VIC) - Assisted-listening devices for use in all seats of Arts Centre Melbourne venues (plus on Guided Tours and for meetings) are available free of charge. These devices use standard headphones or connect with hearing aids via a neck loop. Please speak to their staff when you arrive for assistance with obtaining these devices.
