For audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD)

The glasses are polished, the lights are low, and time will be hopping. The Bar at the Edge of Time waits only for you, so what are you waiting for? 

Leave the hours, minutes, and seconds behind, step across the threshold and meet the bar's maestro mixologists, crooners, and hosts. 

But a mystery lies at the heart of this place, a mystery hidden even from them. One that can only be solved when we spend our time together. A multi-sensory spectacular for audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

The development and tour of The Bar at the Edge of Time is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.


Please note that bookings are taken by phone for these performances - call 0141 276 9661 (please see phone line opening times here) or email tickets@platform-online.co.uk to arrange a time for a call back. Carers (maximum of two to 1 ticket holder) go free.




Frozen Light makes multi-sensory theatre for adult and young adult audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD). Founded in 2013, Frozen Light have created 8 shows which have toured to over 70 different venues across the UK. 

In 2016, Frozen Light was the first company to take a show specifically for audiences with PMLD to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and we returned in 2017 as part of the British Council Showcase. In 2019 we were invited to New Zealand to collaborate with Touch Compass Dance and support the development of the country’s first show specifically for audiences with PMLD, Masina Returning Home. 

Forever adapting with the times, in June 2020 Frozen Light launched The Frozen Light Podcast and in 2021 created their first digital production 2065: The Multi-Sensory Movie, followed by their first outdoor show Night Out in Nature.

Review for 2065

● Does the audience have to stay in the space? 

No. If the audience becomes distressed, they may leave the space and enter again as many times as they like.

 ● Does the audience have to sit still and be quiet? 

No, the audience can move around and make noise. The Bar at the Edge of Time has been made with this in mind and the performers are all trained to be comfortable with this. 

● Are there any lighting or strobe effects?
