RISE FAQs

 

 

We've listed below many of the questions that we get asked and we will try to update as we get more info. Have a read, and if your query isn't answered, please email hello@castindoncaster.com

 

Do I need to collect tickets?

No. Rise is a free event, you do not need to collect your tickets. 

 

Where will the performance be taking place?
Rise will be an outdoor procession through the streets surrounding Cast. The procession will start on Sir Nigel Gresley Square and move in front of Ward Brothers then back towards Cast
.

 

What about the weather? 
We will not abandon the event unless in cases of extreme bad weather such as high winds. Once underway a performance will continue even if it does begin to rain, and the company will make every effort to complete the performance. 

 

 

How long does it last? 
The performance starts at 8pm and should last around 1.5 hours in total.  

 

 

What’s the age suitability? 
Rise has a recommended age of 7+. However, we would ask you to consider whether your children will be comfortable with smoke, pyrotechnics and large crowds of people. 

 

 

Are there flashing lights? 
During the performance there may well be moments of flashing lights, fire and use of theatrical haze.  

 

 

What about those with access or additional needs? 
There will be a small, raised viewing platform on Sir Nigel Gresley Square for anyone using a wheelchair. There will be a ‘Safe Space’ inside of Cast open for those with additional needs, which is not as loud and has low lighting levels.  

 

 

Where can we park? Will any roads be closed? 
We recommend parking in the Civic Quarter Car Park or Chamber Road Car Park. The route the procession will take is still being finalised but we will let you know as soon as all is confirmed!

 

 

Is seating provided? 
No, there will be no seating. This is an outdoor performance and you may move with the action. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather. 

 

 

Are there toilets 
Yes. Cast will be open as usual for use of its normal public facilities. 

 

 

Are dogs allowed? 
We regret that only Guide Dogs are allowed to attend the performances. Please be aware there may be effects and amplified music in the production and large crowds of people attending the event.
