Autism Quiet Hours

We are launching our autism quiet hours every Monday here at intu Milton Keynes!

In support of The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour we host regular quiet hours on Monday from 4pm - 6pm, all year round.

Our shops take simple steps to create a more autism-friendly experience, such as turning down music and dimming bright lights.

Date and time: every Monday from 7th October from 4pm - 6pm

If you or anyone you shop with is autistic, then you can find out more about our Autism Guide here or there is a more visual guide here to help plan for your visit to our centre!

You can also grab yourselves a wrist bands from customer info desk, and when you wear these it helps our staff know that you may need a little bit of extra help.
You can also hire ear defenders, that  help block out any excessive noise, at the cost of £5 refundable deposit available from the customer services desk.

We teamed up with two charities, Puzzle Centre and Macintyre in centre to launch our autism quiet hours. You can find out more about these charities below.
