The Space Center in Ashton-on-Ribble is hosting an accessible Halloween fundraiser.


The event, which takes place on Sunday, October 30, will include a play in the sensory rooms, a course of sweets or treats in a walk in the forest, as well as activities and sensory games.

The Space Center is the UK’s largest multi-sensory center and has been providing support for those with additional needs for 30 years.

Laurie from the Space Center said: “To make the event as accessible as possible, half of the sessions will be reserved for people with additional needs and their immediate families only.

“This allows us to consider all issues such as volume and lighting, and tastes, such as deep pressure and surrounding control, and tailor sessions to meet individuals’ needs.”

Wheelchair users can also experience the magic of Halloween, with a full lift available in all rooms. The toilets, cafe and garden are also fully accessible.

Laurie added, “We know that for some families it can be difficult to find appropriate and accessible Halloween activities, so we hope to fill that gap for as many people as possible.”
