Christmas Wonderland is returning and we're kicking the season off with a low sensory event. This event has been tailored to provide a more relaxed, sensory-friendly atmosphere, catering for people who benefit from lower sensory stimulation. 

The tailored elements include:

  • lower lighting
  • softer music
  • smaller crowds
  • break-out quiet room
  • accessible toilets
  • Santa's grotto
  • workshops and activities
  • food trucks

Although this event is free registration is required to ensure a smaller crowd. Attendance is capped at 100 people per session, register a session here. Sessions are hour time slots from 4pm - 8pm. 

For those who don't require a low sensory experience please attend Christmas Wonderland between 16 -23 December. These sessions are tailored for a lively celebration without specific sensory considerations, and include the addition of a Makers Craft Market.

We are taking steps to make this event as accessible as possible however, please be advised that while much of the outdoor areas of Christmas Wonderland are accessible via paved paths, grassy areas may not be accessible for all wheelchair and mobility aid users.
