    Autism Friendly Events & Venues in Nottingham

    With a more thorough understanding of special needs on the rise, autism friendly events have begun to be implemented throughout the UK, allowing those on the autism spectrum, along with their carers and families, to enjoy and take part in regular events and attractions.

    Often providing ‘early bird’ or late night openings, participating venues can allow those with autism or additional requirements to enjoy their events and attractions in a more relaxed setting. These tailored events can include limited number of visitors, toned down lighting, and less noise to reduce over stimulation, along with chill-out spaces to relax in if things get a little overwhelming.

    Performance Review: Touched at Nottingham Playhouse, 22nd February 2017

    Well go to the foot of our stairs, what a performance!

    On Tuesday night we went to see Touched and what a privilege it was. One of Nottingham Playhouse’s 40th anniversary productions, written by Nottingham playwright, Stephen Lowe, we got a glimpse of 1940s life in Nottingham. Set during the end of World War II, the story revolves around the impact on those at home living in constant fear and hardship but in true to British tradition, having to keep calm and carry on.

    Without giving too much away, here are some of our favourite bits:

    If you’re after some loud rock ‘n’ roll this Saturday night, get yourself over to Contemporary Cafe Bar for another of their excellent Saturday night gigs. This week sees Hull/Leeds sister duo Chambers, who have been making waves with their ‘sister doom’ stylings. Support come from Nottingham glam gang Diablo Furs, who never fail to impress with their trashy 70s punk performances, and 2-piece Minatore who thrash out groovy alternative rock reminiscent of 90s grunge.
