SEND groups are always welcome at all of our sessions.

Wakefield Museums & Castles are also running these SEND sessions for visitors who benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere.

The sessions will be run with more sensory activities and more focus on independent learning.

There will also be a lower light level and with a sensory tent and ear defenders available upon request.
