About this event

SEND October half term activity - Visit to Stockport Air Raid Shelters

Stockport MBC would like to offer support with October half term activities for families who have children with additional SEND needs and low income families.

We realise that the last few months have been really hard for SEND families and those who may not have as much money.

We have therefore allocated slots free of charge to visit Stockport Air Raid Shelters, for families who are eligible for free school meals or may have a child with special educational needs or disabilities .

These slots will need to be booked in advance to ensure Covid-19 social distancing measures are in place. Please note that every member of your family will need a ticket to gain entry (max 6 people per time slot).

The time slots will be dedicated to ensure they are quieter for SEND families. The visits will be available during the October half term (24th October - 1st November). They will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

More about the museum:

Stockport Air Raid Shelters are carved into the natural sandstone cliffs under Stockport town centre. This intriguing network of underground tunnels offers visitors an unparalleled insight into life in wartime Britain in the 1940's. Visitors have the opportunity of learning about the experiences of local people during the second world war from the displays in the tunnels.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, we have put new measures in place in order to meet the new government guidance on social distancing and hygiene.

Some of the changes that we have put in place include:

  • We are asking all visitors to book advance timed tickets online to visit Stockport Air Raid Shelters. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL VISITORS WILL NEED A TICKET INCLUDING CHILDREN. If there are visitors in your party without a ticket we are unable to guarantee your entry.
  • Group sizes will be limited to a maximum of six people per time slot in order to ensure that social distancing is possible at all times around the museum.
  • We have introduced a one-way system for moving throughout the museum.
  • All visitors are required to supply and wear a face covering inside the Air Raid Shelters at all times unless they have a legitimate reason for not doing so, such as a health condition that makes it difficult to wear a face covering. Young children under the age of 11 years old are exempt.
  • There are hand sanitising stations upon entering and exiting the museum.
  • We have introduced additional cleaning protocols.
