Autism Hour

We are holding an Autism Hour from 9:30am - 10:30am on the event day, where we will be making adjustments by reducing lighting and noise, so that autistic children and their families feel welcome and safe whilst attending the festival. If you have an autistic child who would benefit from this hour, please choose early access Autism Hour tickets at checkout. Autism Hour ticket holders will also have access to a sensory quiet room throughout the event day from 9:30am - 4pm and general admission to the event throughout the day. Please note Autism Hour tickets must be ordered before the event. There will be no additional Autism Hour tickets available on the door.

If you would like to attend the Autism Hour please ensure all members of your party have an Autism Hour ticket. You do not need to order additional General Admission tickets for the event.

In the event of no-shows, we will also run a waiting list for each talk so please check with the talk facilitator on the day. A General Admission ticket must be held in addition to any talk tickets to gain entry.
