Warwick Castle Christmas lights adapted for kids with special needs

A Christmas attraction is to hold bespoke events for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Warwick Castle will turn its light trail into a sensory experience with static lights, no music and a calmer atmosphere.

The attraction has worked with a group of mothers of children on the autism spectrum who helped give advice.

The special evenings will run on 4 December and 4 January.

This year’s trail features 500,000 lights and three new tunnel entrances as well as a 25m (82ft) Christmas tree fashioned from bulbs.

The attraction took a year of planning and six weeks of installations to completely transform a 1.6-mile route across 64 acres of grounds and gardens.
