About SEND Session
A Night of Tranquillity: We're excited to offer you a uniquely peaceful atmosphere. Our visitor numbers will be purposefully limited to ensure a relaxed environment for all attendees. We’ll have quiet zones and extra staff on duty.
Sensory Delights: We understand the importance of sensory sensitivity. That's why we're foregoing loud music to ensure a serene soundscape that everyone can enjoy. In addition, there will be reduced flashing lights and lasers.
A Train-Free Haven: On 15th November, to further elevate the comfort of our guests, the train will be taking a break for the evening. This way, you can explore our venue without any disruptions.
Train Adventure for the Train Enthusiasts: For our young explorers who would enjoy the train, we're delighted to offer an optional train ride experience during our SEND evening on 5th January 2024. While the train does create a noise that some may find distressing, we also understand that some children thrive on the sensory experience it brings. The train will run at a gentle pace to ensure the comfort for everyone.
Note: For safety reasons, the train horn must sound as it approaches each of 3 pedestrian crossing points on the trail. The driver will only use the horn at these points, and will not sound the horn in the tunnel or at any other time on the journey. If you believe that the train noise might be overwhelming for your child, please book our train free evening on 15th November.
