The Hub: Theatre 1


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 last year included Supporting Autistic Children and Young People with Transitions; Women with Asperger’s and Chronic Illness; Mentoring Autistic People; Hidden Hardships, Quirks and Mental Health; and Keeping Your Autistic Self Safe Online.

This year’s programme will be announced in March. In the meantime you can view the full 2018 programme by clicking on the date tabs below.

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.

Places are offered on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive as early as possible before the session you wish to attend to save disappointment.
