Debbie was inspired to organise this event by her son James who has Aspergers, a complex part of the Autism spectrum. Hundreds of children in Bristol share the same diagnosis and the Bristol Autism Project gives them the opportunity to have fun and freedom in their childhood. It also offers a helpline enabling parents to talk to other parents and professionals.

The show will be open from 11.00AM until 5.00PM on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April. Entry is free although donations will be greatly appreciated. There will be an opportunity to bid on items.

The auction will take place at 6.30PM on Saturday 28 April and will be attended by the Lord Mayor; this event is invitation only, please email to register. There might be online bidding (details to be confirmed).
