FOR FAMILIES OF CHILDREN WITH AUTISM OR SPECIAL NEEDS WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM A SENSORY FRIENDLY SESSION: Fri 15th Dec 3-5pm or Sunday 17th December, 3-5pm.

This is an invitation to families of children or adults who would benefit seeing The Christmas Garden in a quieter, sensory friendly environment, outside of the times open to the public. The 30 minute timed sessions include a personal group guide to explain while walking around the scenes, special “passports” for the children, clear signage, optional no flashing lights, a 5 minute warning bell before the session ending time, and an optional chill out zone, if required.

To book your special family time, please “purchase” a family ticket and wait to receive an email from us with the details of your 30 minute time allocation.
