Autism’s got Talent Merseyside receives a standing ovation


Autism’s got Talent Roadshow travelled to the Wirral showcasing singers, dancers , musicians and adding a touch of magic to The Floral Pavillion.

UK Charity AnnaKennedyonline’s annual roadshow finally made it to the North West in New Brighton, thanks to a partnership with the Merseyside charity ‘Autism Together.’

Support from commercial sponsors Wirral Chamber and Medicash made the evening possible.

The talent show was first established by autism campaigner, Anna Kennedy OBE ,and featured 19 acts, all of whom had different skills to showcase to the public.

It featured no winner or judge system and is based freely on the celebration of the people involved.

It was hosted by Radio City presenter Claire Simmo with special guests who introduced some of the acts on stage, one being Cheryl Fergison and Nicole Barber Lane, who both brought buckets of amazing personality to the stage.

The night brought a new-found knowledge of the struggles young people and adults go through when dealing with the effects of autism and gave them an opportunity to showcase what they love.

Anna Kennedy OBE founder of the show told JMU Journalism said: “We’re so busy but we’re so excited to be at the roadshow. I’m so proud of all our performers tonight they’ve really stepped it up from the rehearsals to the performances”

Talent was abundant during each and every performance with some stories so heartfelt it filled the room with tears, with huge applause given to the acts.

Anna Kennedy announced we are now accepting entries for our show in May and the closing date is December 31. Please see link to send in your entry and Show us your Talent!
