Sensory Room | FA Cup Spaces Available
Most Premier League matches until March are already fully booked, however the Hornets' Sensory Room - which enables children on the autism spectrum to enjoy football in a calm environment - still has spaces available for the FA Cup tie against Bristol City on Saturday January 6 (3pm kick-off).
With tickets for Under-18s available for just £2 each, this would be an excellent chance for families who’ve not been able to bring their child to a match to use the room.
The Sensory Room features a comfortably furnished viewing area, with an excellent view of the action and a state-of-the-art calming area featuring a bubble tube, fibre-optic carpet, soft seating, wall projectors, communications board, a glitter-ball with a colour wheel, and a bluetooth speaker system so that visitors to the room can choose their own music if the game becomes too distressing for their child.
It is managed by fully-trained staff with a background in working with children on the autism spectrum, and is accessible from Vicarage Road.
Fans who are interested in trying the room should contact Dave Messenger, the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer, in the first instance, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Places will be subject to availability and a letter from a doctor/consultant or other healthcare professional may be required when booking.
Parents will also have the option to visit the room before matchday, if they wish to check its suitability. Please click HERE for more information about the Sensory Room and an online guided tour.
