  • A warm welcome from our experienced artist team
  • Limited numbers
  • A quiet breakaway room for those needing their own time and space
  • Individual materials packs for families to use during their visit and take home
  • A visual story emailed to you before your visit

This morning is designed for children, and their families, who would enjoy a quieter, more personalised visit, including children with autism spectrum conditions, other sensory processing differences or access needs.
