Shoppers can expect low-volume soothing music, dimmed lights and the tannoy system will be turned off. ‘Quiet zones’ across the centre will be manned by friendly staff and there will also be sensory areas and a dog station for guide dogs.

Staff will wear easily identifiable clothing and be on hand to answer any questions. Free refreshments will be available at greeting stations, where shoppers can get information about the evening and exclusive discounts and pictorial mall guides.
