From Queensgate:

We’re delighted to announce the return of our popular and highly valuable EnAbled shopping event.

First launched in 2017, the EnAbled Shopping event provides a relaxed and comfortable shopping environment for disability groups, carers and individuals with specific needs, of all ages and abilities.

Plus, this year, guests will be able to enjoy the evening while the centre has its Christmas decorations on in full display.

On Friday 7 December, low-volume soothing music will play throughout the centre, the lights will be dimmed throughout the evening, and the tannoy system will be turned off. There will be ‘quiet zones’ manned by friendly staff, sensory areas and even a dog station for guide dogs.

Our friendly, trained staff will wear easily identifiable clothing and will be on hand to answer all your questions. Expect to see greetings stations with free refreshments throughout the centre, where shoppers can get information about the evening as well as exclusive discounts and pictorial mall guides.


Invitations have been emailed out in the last few days, please contact Laura or Maggie if you’ve not received your invitation. Please RSVP as soon as possible so we can get everything ready.
