If you’re looking for something for your family to do on those lazy days after Christmas and before New Years Eve, join us back at Watts Gallery for The Make Space, from Thursday 28 to Sunday 31 December 2023.
The sessions on Sunday 3 and 10 December at 10.45am will be reserved exclusively for families with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, for those who would benefit from a quieter, calmer session and additional support.
Please get in touch at email@example.com if you have any questions, and if you need to add a carer to your booking.
We will be in touch with those who booked these sessions in advance to find out how we can further provide support during families’ time meeting Father Christmas.
