Join us for our monthly Relaxed Sunday Sessions – dedicated quiet time for anyone to access and enjoy the science centre, including autistic people and those with other sensory needs. 

Explore the science centre with fewer visitors* and less noise, and enjoy relaxed performances in our planetarium and Science Theatre. Find out what’s on during your visit.

Lighting and sound levels will be altered where possible, to accommodate those with sensory needs. For example, hand-dryers in toilets will be turned off for the duration of the session.

Relaxed Sunday Sessions run from 10.00am – 12.00pm You are welcome to stay after this time if you wish, but please note that our traditional programme, lighting and sound levels will gradually resume from 12.00pm.

One of Life’s founding principles has been to bring science to different groups and communities. It’s something we’re passionate about.

Life has been awarded the Gold Standard by The North East Autism Society (NEAS), making it the first visitor attraction to ever receive the award.

‘We’ve been to a lot of relaxed sessions with other companies such as the cinema and bowling etc… we were blown away with how calm, friendly and fun this place was! We will definitely be coming back on a monthly basis.’
