This accessibility statement applies to www.bradford-theatres.co.uk. This website is run by Bradford Theatres/Bradford Council.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Bradford Theatres is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard due to the non-compliances listed below:

Issues with videos

As videos are provided by third parties, it is not always possible for us to provide captions or subtitles for videos with audio.

Issues with images

The volume of events we hold at our venues means it is not practical to retrospectively add
image alt tags to images on historic event pages. Our process now includes always adding alt
tags to images when new event images are added to the website.

How we tested this website

This website was last tested in September 2020. The test was carried out by 9xb Digital Agency on
behalf of Bradford Theatres. The pages tested were:

  • Homepage (www.bradford-theatres.co.uk)
  • Event pages (For example, www.bradford-theatres.co.uk/whats-on/sleeping-beauty)
  • Content pages (For example, www.bradford-theatres.co.uk/about-us)

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We will carry out regular testing and make improvements as needed.
