Derby Quad are running free sensory days throughout January 2013.

Every Sunday in January Derby Quad will be turning their gallery into a sensory environment. This will be open for people with learning disabilities  and their carers to attend. There will be soft cushions and toys, and people are welcome to bring their own music on CD to play.

Sensory Sunday Dates: January 13th, 20th, 27th and Feb 3rd all 10am-12pm

They are also offering two Thursday evenings, 6-8pm on the 10th and 24th January.

For more information about these sessions please email Sophie Powell on

The gallery will be closed to the general public, but open to anyone who wants to come along and will benefit from the sensory environment. If you’ve got any questions about the exhibition please contact Sophie Powell.
