FAQs

Who can attend this event?

Autistic adults living in the Leeds City Council area – click here for a map – can come. Employers who don’t have a stall but want to network can come too. You can also come if you’re a parent or carer of an autistic adult in Leeds.

I’m not from the Leeds area. Can I still attend?

This event is for people in the Leeds City Council area and is funded for people in Leeds. Unfortunately, it isn’t really open to people in neighbouring areas such as Bradford and Wakefield.

How do I confirm my attendance?

You can either send an email through the contact form on our contact page or visit our Facebook event page and say you’re going. For the latter, you need to log in to your Facebook account to do so.

I’m an employer but have missed out on booking a stall. Can I still attend?

Unfortunately, we have run out of stalls.

If you would like to book a stall for next year please email:  leedshiddentalents@gmail.com

I’m the parent/carer of an autistic person? Can I come on their behalf?

You can. If your child isn’t able to come but you want to get information for employers, then you’re welcome to visit.

I’m planning on coming to the event by car. What are the parking arrangements?

There is a small car park outside the venue, but the spaces available are for drivers with blue disabled parking badges only. Otherwise, there are multi-storey car parks near the Merrion Centre, on Westgate and at the Light Shopping Centre which are a short walking distance from the venue.

I experience sensory overload. Will your event take my needs into account?

We will try to make the event as autistic-friendly as possible. We will leave sufficient space between stalls so that the fair isn’t too crowded, while we also have a quiet room for anyone who needs a little quiet time if the noise level is too high.
