Prefer calm and quiet to piped playlists? You’ll love our new Quiet Tuesdays! From now on, we won’t be playing any music between 10am and 12 noon on the first Tuesday of every month, so you can shop, meet and eat in peace.
Quiet Tuesdays are regular calm mornings, during which there will be no music, product demonstrations, or activity throughout the malls, with the aim of making the centre more accessible to those who find such noises over-stimulating.
Upcoming dates: 5th November, 3rd December, 7th January 2020, 4th February 2020.
White Rose Introduces ‘Quiet Tuesdays’
White Rose Shopping Centre is introducing ‘Quiet Tuesdays’, regular mornings of calm, during which there will be no music, product demonstrations, or activity throughout the malls, with the aim of making the centre more accessible to those who find such noises over-stimulating.
The new initiative will allow visitors to the centre to shop, eat, and browse, as well as meet family and friends in a quiet environment from 10am to 12pm during the first Tuesday of every month.
White Rose is passionate about ensuring all visitors feel relaxed and stress-free, to enjoy their time at the centre, and the introduction of ‘Quiet Tuesdays’ is a direct response to customer feedback.
To support its accessibility commitment, the centre has recently published an Autism-Friendly Guide in association with local charity Specialist Autism Services, and its Cineworld hosts monthly autism-friendly screenings on the first Sunday of every month.
In 2017, White Rose unveiled a new toilet and family changing facility complete with a Changing Places space. Changing Places toilets meet the needs of those with profound and multiple learning or physical disabilities, providing the right equipment, enough space, and a safe, clean environment.
Steven Foster, General Manager of White Rose Shopping Centre, said: “It’s very important to us that White Rose is as accessible and inclusive as possible. These low-stimulation sessions aim to meet the needs of our community, and we hope this makes shopping and dining even more enjoyable for our visitors.”
