Sensory Showroom Visits

SpaceKraft, a company that sells sensory equipment, are kindly lending us some equipment for our sensory room this year. SpaceKraft also have some sensory show-rooms we are welcome to visit during Autscape. They are located around 30 miles (48 km) from the venue.

We have kept Tuesday afternoon free of formal programme activities so that those who want to visit the showrooms can do so without fear of missing presentations.

You can visit them privately or use the Autscape provided transport. The transport cost is £20 per person.

SpaceKraft's opening hours are 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.

If you want to find out more about the rooms before you commit to visiting, the person to ask after Autscape starts is Trish, who is the programme coordinator for this year. Trish will be visiting them on the morning before Autscape begins. Some of you will remember Trish and her ukulele from previous years but we will try and point her out in the orientation for those who don't.

The show-rooms demonstrate:

Autscape arranged visits

The cost for this service is £20 per person. The cost is to cover your transport.

We estimate the trip will take about two and a half hours. You will spend about 50 minutes on the road, 30 minutes visiting the show rooms and have another 50 minutes' drive coming back.

You will go on the trip with a group of people in a minibus. To commit to the trip email to arrange payment.

We regret that we cannot offer refunds if you change your mind and do not ride because the company we are hiring the vehicles from charges us per vehicle and not per person. Please don't commit to this trip until you are sure you want to come. If there are any spare places you can sign up for them at Autscape.

Private visits

If you are interested in visiting by car please email to arrange a time. Visits must be arranged in advance.
