THE BLANKET FORT CLUB EXPERIENCES

40-60 minute sensory immersive theatre experiences with character ‘hosts’ guiding participants through tactile spaces in a living, breathing, sonic blanket fort! Discover The Three Little Pigs in The Story Room, splash through the puddles in the rain corridor, construct a castle in the building room. Once you have  journeyed through the blanket fort, all you’ll need is a sheet and your imagination to find your way back to us.

CREATIVE ACCESS AND INCLUSION

The Blanket Fort Club uses innovative 'sensory maps' to engage audience participants in an immersive journey, exploring story and theme through tactile spaces with their character guide. Each map has been designed to engage the senses and encourage playful interaction with characters and the Blanket Fort Club world-some maps are more quest-based than others.

 

Transitions are part of the magical experience, with the blanket fort inviting us through intriguing light, sound and tactile elements. At brief times, the maps weave together, celebrating connections and enriching concepts around the beauty of transient moments.

The Blanket Fort Club has a broad appeal, offering a cosy sanctuary for some and an endlessly playful and absorbing activity for others, smashing down barriers to access, embedding:

 

  • Makaton and audio description (with BSL track offers)

  • Touch Tours

  • Social Story and orientation enrichment                                             

  • Therapeutic play and regulation 

  • Close up and responsive sensory storytelling

  • Supportive audio/visual transition cues 

  • Experiential 'Sensory maps'
