About the SEND Community Offer Relaxed Cinema

Thanks to the Manchester City Council’s Local Offer, we are able to run monthly relaxed cinema screenings at GRUB / Cultplex, a wonderful street food and independent cinema venue in the Red Bank area of Manchester City Centre.

As part of Manchester’s SEND Community Offer, these cinema sessions are FREE to book for families of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) living in a ward/area covered by Manchester City Council.

What makes it “SEND-Friendly”?

Manchester Parent Carer Forum (MPCF) is committed to making the event as welcoming and comfortable as possible. You can expect:

  • This event is exclusive to families and groups that are accompanying children and young people with additional needs and/or disabilities.
  • Peace of Mind – All MPCF staff and volunteers have lived experience of SEND so you can rest assured that there will be a level of empathy and understanding with any needs or quirks that may arise on the day. Please speak to a member of the team if you have a request to make for a better experience.
  • A Quieter Experience – The cinema will reduce the volume if needed and we can request for some lights to be kept on, ensuring that your visit will not be too overwhelming.
  • Alternative Access – Wheelchair and buggy users can enter the cinema via the level access door for those that wish to make use of it.
  • In Your Own Time – No need to rush and bustle. Whether you are coming late or have to leave early, it’s okay with us.

The new Manchester SEND Local Offer logo shows a well-designed lettering of 'LOCAL' in orange colour, with the L's sandwiching the word 'OFFER'.Acknowledgements:

Much thanks to the SEND Local Offer for making this possible.

We’d also like to thank GRUB for providing us with a wonderful cinema package that families can enjoy.
