The team behind this website hope that, whoever needs to use it, can do so easily.

As the producers of Between the Tides, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council believes that access to arts, events and culture is for all and that accessibility should be woven in to how we produce all of our events.

If you do come across anything that you feel could be more accessible, or would like to make any suggestions to improve the site from an accessibility point of view, please get in touch with us at

We believe in conversation! Please feel free to email us for information in alternative formats.
