Back for 2021: FREE Sensory for Babies Sessions at The Royals

Royals Sensory For Babies 2021 Free event

Booking for our FREE Sensory for Babies sessions are now closed for 2021.

We will be back in 2022.

Designed to help your baby’s development during the first year, these extra-special sessions are much loved by babies and adults alike, and after a break for 2020, we’re so excited to be bringing them back this year.


Spend quality time with your little one and join our Sensory for Babies sessions, held here at The Royals Shopping Centre in Southend every Wednesday between 15th September until 17th November. Specifically tailored to suit the different stages of a baby’s development, we will be running two sessions on the lower ground floor of The Royals. The first session is for 0-7 month olds at 10.45am, followed by a session for 8-13 month olds at 11.45am.


Want to join in? Fill in a sign up form here. 

Dates: Every Wednesday, 15th September – 17th November

Location: Lower ground floor, The Royals Shopping Centre

Session 1: 10.30am – 11.15am for 0-7 month olds

Session 2:11.45am – 12.30pm for 8-13 month olds


Led by professional and experienced class leaders, each session here at The Royals includes a range of activities designed to stimulate and engage your baby’s senses, while incorporating a fun, interactive and immersive theme.

Your little one could discover the world under the sea, venture on a mission to space, join our magical teddy bear’s picnic, swing by the seaside with a bucket and spade, or explore the world of work. Later sessions will engage your baby’s senses by taking them through all the seasons of the year – think spring bunnies, summer holidays, the bright colours of fireworks and the sensations of a snowstorm.

In October, we’ll introduce our classes to all the festive sensory delights of birthdays and Halloween. In November, you and your baby can join us on a jungle adventure, while our last session of the year will immerse your little one in all the fun and games that Christmas brings!

Throughout these completely FREE sessions, your little one’s sense of sound will be developed through singing, nursery rhymes and musical instruments. Massage, gymnastics and tummy time will introduce your baby to physical touch and active movement, while the colourful props and lights will develop their motor skills and communication.

From the joy of seeing your baby learn new skills to the quality time spent together and memories made, adults will enjoy these sessions just as much as their little ones!
