Anna had this to say after the show:

“Happy New Year: our first ‘All things Autism in Essex’ on Gateway. What a great show, 2 amazing guests Ben Pearson and Angus Baskerville chat to Aston and I.

“The focus on this month’s show was very much on wellbeing and mental health and not to suffer alone please reach out and talk to friend’s families or an organisation you feel you can trust. Look forward to being back in the Gateway studio in February . As always keep checking charity website for our latest news.

“Angus’ magic career began in 2014, after studying at the famous Davenports in London. He gained membership of the local Leamington and Warwick Magic Society in 2015 and was accepted as a member of the prestigious MAGIC CIRCLE in February 2020. He is very proud of this achievement as it allows him to walk in the footsteps of the best and most famous magicians in the business – Dynamo, David Copperfield and Paul Daniels.

“In his work as an autism advocate for Anna Kennedy OBE,  he has had the opportunity to perform magic for celebrities such as Frank Bruno MBE, Sir Mo Farah OBE, Jack Willis, Frankie Dettori MBE, Peter Jones CBE and the legendary comedian, Jasper Carrott.

“Take care everyone Love Anna x”

All Things Autism in Essex will return in February.
