How would you describe Russell Grant?


A trip to see a pantomime is a regular festive treat for many families, especially when it features some famous faces.

So it is not surprising that theatres are increasingly keen to ensure that everyone can enjoy the experience, including those with visual or hearing impairments.

Russell Grant is currently starring in Aylesbury Waterside Theatre's production of Peter Pan. In addition to the regular shows, the theatre is also running special performances for children with autism, signed performances for deaf people and audio description and touch tours for visually impaired members of the audience.

BBC News went behind the scenes to find out how audio description and touch tours work.
