A special event is being held to celebrate talented people with autism.

The Autism's Got Talent roadshow is visiting the Basildon Towngate Theatre on Saturday.

The roadshow has been assisted by local autistic man Aston-Martin Avery who is the local ambassador for the high-profile autism charity Anna Kennedy Online.

Aston performed in 2015 and has since been made an ambassador of the charity where he aims to bring as much autism awareness to his own county as possible.

He has raised nearly £20,000 alone by putting on his Autistic and Proud events and more recently he organised a local celebrity football fun day.
