Relaxed Events are designed for people with autism spectrum conditions and their families and friends, meaning that they can enjoy arts and culture together in a stress-free way. These events are also suitable for people with sensory conditions, dementia or learning difficulties.
During a Relaxed Event, you’ll find that lights and noises will be at a lower level. And special effects will also be toned down. There will be a relaxed attitude to noise and movement. You’ll also be able to move in and out of the space as you wish. Many venues will also provide a chill-out space if you need to take some time out of the event.
Additionally, many of Manchester’s museums and galleries offer quieter opening times and autism-friendly visiting guides (which you can download before you visit).
