We have worked with AccessAble to develop comprehensive guides to each of our gallery spaces. Mission Christmas will take place in our Command of the Oceans galleries and our dedicated guides give you the detailed information you need to work out if a space is going to be accessible to you.
We will be offering three dedicated, relaxed experience times that have been specially tailored for those with additional needs on:
- Saturday 25th November – 3pm
- Saturday 9th December – 6.15pm
- Monday 18th December – 6.15pm
These tours operate at a reduced capacity, giving families an opportunity to enjoy Mission Christmas in a calmer environment. These sessions will have quieter music, lower lighting and the guide will go at a slower pace to reduce overloading the senses and create an experience which is accessible for all.
British Sign Language Tour (BSL)
For the first time we will be introducing a BSL session for Mission Christmas on Sunday 10 November.
This session will be led by a qualified BSL interpreter and will go at a slower pace to ensure everyone gets the best experience.
We recognise hidden disabilities. Our staff will recognise sunflower lanyards and these act as a discreet sign to indicate that an individual may need additional assistance or support.
Children with noise anxiety
Some parts of the Mission Christmas experience can get a little noisy and involve audience participation. There are background noises and sound effects in some areas. For children with noise anxiety, we have a small supply of ear defenders that can be borrowed for the experience.
