Key Club is a FREE creative arts and social club for young people on the autism spectrum.  The members meet once a month at The Lyric, Hammersmith on a Saturday from September to June.  They participate in a creative workshop and share refreshments and social time.

“I love coming to the club because we get to do something new, creative and fun each month!”

“If there was no Key Club I don't think I'd be the same person I am today. I don't know what would have happened to get me out of the house and interacting with people, especially people my own age.”

PEOPLE OFTEN ASK US "WHO WE ARE" AND WHAT EXACTLY DO WE DO, WELL THIS FILM IS OUR ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION.

"By turns shifting, gritty, soft and searing, it is one of the most complete theatrical experiences at this year’s Fringe.” Edinburgh Guide

HE AIN'T HEAVY IS A NEW SHOW BY ODDLY MOVING. GRANIA PICKARD TELLS THE STORY OF GROWING UP WITH HER DISABLED AUTISTIC BROTHER "SEAN". IT WILL TOUR IN OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2017.

When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain't Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways.

“An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love through puppetry and an aerial swing. You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
