Sponsoring opportunity - Autism’s Got Talent
Anna Kennedy Online is proud to announce Autism’s Got Talent 2018 which celebrates and recognise the excellence taking place in the world of Autism. The charity would like to offer you an opportunity to be our corporate sponsor for this unique project:
Leading Autism Campaigner Anna Kennedy OBE, in association with Pineapple Performing Arts, presents Autism’s Got Talent – May 2018 at The Mermaid Theatre, London. As part of her ongoing campaign to support children and adults with autism, Anna Kennedy OBE is hosting her Annual smash hit production Autism’s Got Talent night at the Mermaid Theatre in London.
This star studded spectacular event will showcase amazingly talented performances by adults and children with autism. The performers, which will consist of singers, actors, musicians, and dance troupes, will fly the flag for autism and show what people with autism and Aspergers syndrome are capable of. Autism’s Got Talent, which is an annual event, is growing in popularity each year, and 2018 has firmly cemented its status as a leading charity and autism event. Supported in the past by celebrities including Robin Windsor, Kasey Ainsworth, John Paul Rock Horsley, Dame Esther Rantzan, John Bercow , Carrie and David Grant, Debbie Moore OBE, Ian Royce, Dr Pam Spurr, Steve Hewlett, Mitch Winehouse, Denise Welch, Lauren Lovejoy, Caprice, The Gilbey family (Googlebox), Emma Noble and many many more. Highlights can be viewed on the following YouTube clips:-
Autism’s Got Talent provides a platform and great opportunity to replace negative aspects with hope, fun, laughter, and inclusion. This showcase is unique to any other projects across the world. Most of the acts have spring boarded into exclusive opportunities and the audience feel a rare emotion of hope and belonging and part of a unique network and understanding that anything is possible. Next year promises a showcase of a huge variety of performers. In previous years there has been a stand-up performer, harpist, rappers, young author, acclaimed ballet dancer, opera singers as well as a bone breaker, who is now the face of Calvin Klein. Talent entries were totally mind blowing and Anna Kennedy Online have included acts from overseas Sweden, Croatia, US, Canada and across the UK.
With more than 500,000 people diagnosed with autism in the UK it is easy to simply label these people. The fact is that autism is an often-misunderstood disorder and while it can be difficult for those affected to express themselves they are often highly intelligent and able people who can achieve extraordinary things, but often in their own way. Recognising the uniqueness of those with autism Anna Kennedy, who has two sons with the condition, has worked tirelessly to find ways of recognising the ability not the disability in these individuals.
The Autism’s Got Talent event is one of the ways of recognising that ability and will showcase the performing talents of a whole host of talent. Describing the event Anna Kennedy said. “This is a great opportunity for those with autism to get up on stage and really show what they can do. So often society views these people as difficult and uncommunicative, but this event will really dispel that myth with some fantastic talent on display.”
This whole project is based solely on inclusion and there needs to be more, which is why we have started roadshows and set to go to Liverpool in 2018. Unlike other talent shows the evening will have many surprises and delights as children and adults showcase and perform before a live audience.

The cost of this will be from £500 and in return we would offer many sponsorship benefits, such as your logo and website on our website and in our program. Social media promotion to a network of over 100,000 people and outreach of over 500,000 along with full press promotion and inclusion in all press opportunities. We would also offer two complimentary tickets to attend as a gesture of goodwill. There will be excellent networking opportunities alongside positive brand promotion and association by collaborating with us including PR and press coverage of the awards at each stage of the process.
“There are so many people in the UK who are going that extra mile to help children & young people with Autism. We thought that it would be nice to let people know about this good practice. We also feel that people with Autism achieve so much on a daily basis that maybe goes unnoticed. We would like to show you how amazing Autism is through the awards.”
