Spectrum Festival is an autism friendly festival designed to provide festival goers with more choice, more activities and more fun for all the family. The success of 2018’s first ever Spectrum Festival, which saw over 1000 people attend, has led to the expansion of the event. For 2019, Spectrum Festival will be open over two weekends, the 1st & 2nd June and the 21st September.

For the founder of Spectrum Festival, David Ryan, the successes of last year, 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 such as Derby County Football in the Community and Derby College who will offer information about their services and will be providing activities for all to enjoy on the day.
