Cheshire Oaks autism-friendly shopping – Tuesday 3rd July 5-8pm.
Cheshire Oaks are part of our Autism Champions scheme and once a month they host an autism-friendly shopping experience, where lights are dimmed, music turned low and quiet spaces are on offer to chill out. If you go straight to the visitors’ centre, you can collect a map of the site and an alert card you can use to show a member of staff if you require any assistance.
Mattel Play, Liverpool – Wednesday, 27thJune – 4:30-6:30pm (£7 per child with 2 carers for free).
Capacity is limited during these sessions to ensure a calm and relaxed experience for all guests. Mattel Play are also one of Autism Together’s Champions and host monthly sessions. They also run quiet sessions every week day morning from 9:20 -11:20am. The perfect chance to go with the little ones during term time.
Autism-friendly cinema screenings are great for the whole family. The volume is lowered in the theatre, the lights are raised and there are no adverts before the film – it goes straight to the main feature. Most cinemas offer discounted tickets and all cinemas accept CEA Cards.
