Autism Friendly Award

In 2018 The National Autistic Society awarded Disney’s THE LION KING and the Lyceum Theatre an Autism-Friendly Award.

The award demonstrates our commitment to making the theatre experience welcoming to autistic people and their families at every stage, with clear information available before and during your visit, trained members of staff across the theatre teams, and a commitment to raising awareness of autism among the general public.
