The ALAG and Autism Hub April 2023 meeting was an in-person special in celebration of Autism Acceptance month, allowing new and regular participants to meet up. This was a special with music performed by The Autistic Adult Choir, led by Choirmaster- Jill Bradford. A great range of songs, was followed up by an emotionally solo performance – reflecting on family circumstances.Newly written poetry was performed by Alain English – offering words and sentiments which resonated with the audience. After that, there were more popular songs ending with Love Shine Life – a hint at a well know song contest coming to the UK in May 2023.
The music, poetry and in-person event showcased autistic talent, an opportunity for social interaction, and of course entertainment with plenty of snack and drinks on offer. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
