Relaxed Events in Manchester

Many theatres, museums, galleries, cinemas and libraries in Manchester offer Relaxed Events.

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).
