Sensory Palaces

Sensory Palaces

 

Sensory Palaces is a health and wellbeing programme for people living with early stage dementia and their carers.

 

 

Sensory Palaces combines historical storytelling with a multi-sensory approach for people living with early stage dementia and their carers. It aims to increase participants’ sense of wellbeing, belonging and confidence, supporting them to explore the stories of some of the greatestpalaces ever built in an interactiveand immersive way. There are monthly activities at Hampton Court Palace, which put stimulating the senses at their heart. Emphasis is placed on one particular sense during the workshop, which helps participants make connections to the palace environment and stories of the people who’ve lived there.  For example, taste might be deployed in the Tudor Kitchens, or the hearing might be used to inspire a session exploring Tudor music in the Great Hall.

Our next session at Hampton Court Palace is now open for bookings.
