Listen to the experiences of autistic adults to gain direct insights into your past, present and future, in partnership with PARC.

Just some of the topics covered this year include Keeping Your Autistic Self Safe Online; Relationships for People on the Autism Spectrum; How We Got Through Those Difficult Years; and School Refusal: How We Got Him Back to School.

The Hub: Theatre 1 has a seating capacity of 80 and sound is relayed to the audience through wireless headsets to reduce sound levels in the hall.
