Anna had this to say after the show:

“Another great ‘All things Autism in Essex ‘ on Gateway 97.8 with my Autism Ambassador Aston . We now are known as the Dynamic Duo! It was lovely to catch up and listen to Angus Baskerville and Lauren Lovejoy two of our past Autism’s got Talent performers. Angus and Lauren are two talented individuals and they spoke about their experience on our show and Life in Lockdown. Aston and I also gave a shout to the campaign Save out Theatres! The theatre is important to us as a charity for our wonderful Autism’s got Talent shows and Roadshows that we take across the country. This gives many opportunities and a springboard for our talented autistic performers. The autism community is also missing out on relaxed performances which allows families to experience the theatre without being judged and a freedom to move around within the theatre. Both Aston and I are looking forward to our next show on November 5th. On that note please Stay safe, Stay Strong and take it one day at a time. A virtual hug from me to you.”

All Things Autism In Essex will return on the 5th November.
