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

Just some of the subjects covered this year include: insights from an autistic teacher; thriving as an autistic woman; the struggles of an autism diagnosis; autistic experiences of puberty; autism independence; and should you disclose your autism at work?

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.
