“We know that sometimes events can become very overwhelming for some people – sounds, smells and lots of sights to see can sometimes overload a person’s thought process and over stimulate their senses.  Because of this we are offering a quiet zone to help calm down and reduce sensory overload at the Lantern Parade and Christmas Lights Switch on this year.  St James’ Church will be open from 4pm – 6.30pm on Friday 18th November, with their friendly stewards ready to welcome people in and offer a quiet space and a cup of tea or coffee.”
