Autism Hour

On Saturday 5th October we will hold our first Autism Hour! Well, 2 1/2 hours actually... we will be open 5pm-7.30pm with reduced noise to help create a calmer atmosphere. Our 'new' neighbours the Margate Caves are holding one too, at the same time so you could visit us both - perhaps you know someone who would like a slightly less overwhelming underground adventure?


We are currently working on a sensory map and social story to aid accessibility all year round too.
