Disability Friendly Opening
Friday 31st May 13.00-14.00
Free, please book as places are limited

Join us for a relaxed afternoon aimed at children with sensory sensitivities along with their families, siblings & carers. We will be opening the Sedgwick Museum over lunch time when we are normally closed, for children who need a quieter environment.

There are limited spaces to keep the museums from feeling too overwhelming and a ‘chill’ out space will be available if a time out is needed. We will turn off any sounds and will control the lighting as best we can.

Please book places for any family members that will be attending too. Prior to the event you’ll be sent out a visual story for the museum.

Stone Soup - Story Telling Workshop
