About Our



The Award-Winning Autism Friendly festival is back. On the 10th September 2022, at Lea Green Learning & Development Centre, near Matlock, Derbyshire, we will be hosting our inclusive, family friendly event for the 4th year running, if you ignore lockdown...

The event allows people with Autism and other disabilities to have fun in an environment where they can truly be themselves, whilst providing parents and carers a space to relax, without fear of judgement.

The Spectrum festival was the first of its kind in the UK.  Its many fantastic, activities, exhibitors, acts and staff will provide a fun and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy themselves throughout the day.   The aim of the festival is to support and educate families, giving guidance to those who need it. ​


The festival takes place at Lea Green Learning and Development Centre, a fantastic facility with a reputation for excellence in all area's.  The charity that we support and supports us is Autism Awareness Central UK, a very worthwhile charity that strives to support as many people as possible across the County (See details above for both)


All ages are welcome, and you don't need an official diagnosis to attend.  The don’t even need be on the Spectrum. Why not join us for some fun, support and to meet with likeminded people from all over the country.


"We spent all day here 10-4.  All staff were amazing, and it was so refreshing to be somewhere where your child could be understood and accepted"
