2020 Event Cancelled | Following the latest government advice to avoid mass gatherings and continue social distancing we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Leeds Autism Show – Bigger And Better In Leeds.
We have not taken this decision lightly as we know this event is a valuable resource of information for autistic adults, children, their families and carers as well as a platform to have autistic voices heard. However, the health and wellbeing of all our guests, stall holders and volunteers is the utmost importance to us.
Even though the event at Leeds Civic Hall on Tuesday, 14th July will no longer take place, we are plan to share virtual activities, groups and resources from organisations across the the city for you to get involved with.
Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and we will be back in 2021 bigger and better than ever! – The Organising Team
Sensory Friendly Retro Gaming
On 13th December, Leeds Autism Services and Brick42 co-hosted an afternoon of Retro Gaming at The Belgrave Music Hall in partnership with Retro Events. This event ran during support hours (2pm-5pm) and aimed to be all about gaming, socialising and having fun with other people with Asperger’s, Autism and other like minded people, in an environment that was tailored to sensory needs.
The event was a great success and we hoped to run another event in June to coincide with the Bigger And Better In Leeds Autism Show. However, due to the unfolding Covid-19 pandemic and new social distancing measures, this has not been possible. We hope to organise a future Retro Gaming event in 2021.
