Sensory Storytelling Sessions

We provide 90 to 120-minute sensory story sessions for groups of disabled people. The sessions begin with a live oral storytelling using multisensory approaches. This is followed by a guided tour of the Museum and ends with a session in which the participants can explore the world of story through craft, role play, toys, props, dressing up and more oral storytelling. We can tailor this to a story (book, film, comic strip etc.) that your group particularly enjoys.

For the best experience, sessions should be booked for no more than 15 participants at a time. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the needs and requirements of your group at the time of booking.
