Quiet Hour

On the last Sunday of every month, Woolshops Shopping Centre will be hosting a Quiet Hour from 11am – 12noon. As part of this, store music will be turned off and in-store lighting will be dimmed where possible. Please note that some stores are unable to dim their lighting. A quiet hour creates a more welcoming environment for shoppers with autism.
