As part of the exhibition, visitors with disability and their families and carers are invited to take part in free Tactile Tours of some of the sculptures – introducing a new way of enjoying contemporary sculptures through discussion and touch. Verbal descriptions of sculptures visited during the tours will also be offered to people who are blind or vision-impaired.

On 14 and 15 March, special matting will be installed to enable visitors with limited mobility to access and experience sculptures located within specific areas on the beach.

Visit the Sculpture by the Sea website to find out more about access and inclusion at the exhibition.
