The 1st Sensory Legion run events for people with disabilities, life limiting conditions and additional needs.

The main event they run is Feel the Force Day which will take place on 1st October at Kingsgate Community Church, Parnwell, Peterborough. Feel the Force Day is a film and TV convention which is designed around disabled people. There are characters whose costumes can be felt in order to gain a better understanding of who they are and what they look like, smell jars give a sensory aspect, and last year you could have your own green screen video made, to be part of one of your favourite films.

Other events which take place include magic and clowning, an adult burlesque evening, and you can also see Simon and JJ from 1st Sensory Legion at Inspire Peterborough events, such as Sporting Saturday.
