Gig Buddies

Gig Buddies with Thera Trust supports adults with a learning disability or autism to live an active social life. They are able to do this by partnering with community venues and arts organisations, running regular social events, and pairing members with like-minded volunteers to enjoy their shared interests together. Please make the time to come by their stall and find out more about your local Gig Buddies, you'll take away your own personal punk rock tote bag too!

An ambassador of Gig Buddies is Adam Devonshire, he is also the bassist of IDLES who are playing Connect on Friday 26th August at the Grand Parade Stage:

"I am proud to be a patron of such a wonderful project as Gig Buddies. Live events are something every single person should be able to enjoy and the importance of that should not be understated. We should all be able to stay up late if we want to"
