Whoosh!

An interactive sensory space adventure for young explorers with disabilities

Hop on board our spaceship and get ready for blast off!
Calling all budding astronauts! Become a pilot, engineer or navigator as we whoosh across the galaxy for an interstellar adventure for the whole family.
Join our crew to explore outer space, taste space food, experience hyperspace and travel all the way to the mysterious Planet X. We’ll have to work as a team to repair the ship and return to Earth.

Whoosh! is a new interactive multi-sensory adventure that puts children with disabilities in the Captain’s Chair! Created by pioneering theatre-makers Sensorium Theatre, this unique performance is suitable for children with a broad range of access needs, including those with multiple and complex needs and those on the autism spectrum.

General public shows will be held on Thursday 30th May at 4.30pm and Friday 31st May at 10:00am and 1:00pm

There are potentially exciting sound and light changes in Whoosh that are announced as part of the show. Children can prepare for these with the digital app.

These include:

  • “Blast Off”: light fog haze (non allergenic)
  • “Emergency Landing” (slow moving red lights and siren)
  • Planet X – UV Light and low fog haze.

Children can sample “space food” – a list of ingredients can be provided. Essential oils are diffused in the environment. These can be modified to accommodate allergies.
