See, Hear, Feel: SEND Schools Workshops

Part of Schools

Have you ever wondered what sound feels like? Or what music looks like? Book your place on a bespoke sensory and interactive day exclusively for SEND school groups.

The day combines our Soundpit exhibition of interactive musical sandpits and our beautiful Javanese gamelan (percussion orchestra from Indonesia).

This offer combines two workshops before and after lunch to come and spend a day exploring sound, vision and touch at Southbank Centre.

We understand that not all groups will want to partake in both activities and we are happy to tailor a bespoke visit for you.
