Proudly announcing aspens fest 2020

The virtual festival will include a range of activities and workshops themed around helping young people with ASC, mental health difficulties and/or SEN and their families cope with transition and change as we come out of lockdown.

We're very excited to announce that well known comedian and advocate for equal opportunities, Robert White, will Robert White Supports Aspens Fest be performing a specially written song at the festival. Brighton-based Robert, who is gay and has Asperger syndrome, shot to fame after appearing on the TV show Britain’s Got Talent (2018), where he showcased his quick-witted comedy and shone a light on Asperger syndrome and the LGBT community. 

With a focus on mental health and wellbeing for both young people and their parents, Aspens Fest will feature music, yoga, mindfulness, YouTube video making tutorials, sports, sensory and transition workshops tailored to parents, carers, siblings, children and young people with ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition), mental health difficulties and/ or SEN (Special Educational Needs).
