The latest edition of the National Autistic Society local newsletter has just been sent out.
Floral Pavilion – Autism Friendly Cinderella Pantomime!
Tickets are now on sale and going fast for the first ever Autism Friendly Pantomime at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton which will be Cinderella! Autism Together are so excited to be working with the Floral Pavilion to host their first of hopefully many autism friendly performances. There have been a few tweaks to the night to make it more accessible for people with autism and to also benefit the whole family and enable them to do something together!
There will be no loud bangs or unexpected noises during the performance, there will be a sensory space available for those that would like a break away, visual guides will be produced to show people in advance what the environment will look like. If you purchase your tickets through Autism Together at the Rainbow Centre you will be given a discounted rate of just £10 per person and you will still be able to choose which seats you will be in on the night.

Tickets can only be purchased with cash and cannot be reserved in advance.
