Quiet Hours

From Autism to Dementia, this hour is for anyone who prefers a more quiet setting within Eldon Square.



In support of North East Autism Society, we host regular quiet hours on the first Tuesday of every month from 10am to 11am and the following Saturday 9am – 10am all year round. Our shops take simple steps where possible to create a more autism-friendly experience, such as turning down music and dimming bright lights.

From autism to dementia, this hour is for anyone who prefers a more quiet setting within Eldon Square. Where possible, we’ll turn down the music, dim the lights and our staff will be on hand with guides to the centre that may be of use.

Our Quiet Hours

Our quiet hours will run on the first Tuesday and following Saturday of every month.
