Spectrum Festival

Spectrum Festival is an autism friendly festival designed to provide festival goers with more choice, more activities and more fun for all the family. 2018 was the first ever Spectrum Festival, which saw over 1000 people attend, and the appetite to host a festival annually has only increased . For 2020, Spectrum Festival will be hosted in September.

For the founder of Spectrum Festival, David Ryan, the successes of the previous two years, which included the festival winning the 2018 Best New Accessible Event at the Accessible Derbyshire Awards, has left him overcome with joy, “I am overwhelmed by the support and positivity that came from running this event. So many smiling faces from parents, children and adults alike, from all walks of life. If only every day out could be like this for people on the spectrum.”

Spectrum Festival will be hosted at Lea Green, allowing attendees the opportunity to access their high wires, climbing wall and zip wire. The festival will again be packed with organisations who will offer information about their services and will be providing activities for all to enjoy on the day.
