A popular Britain’s Got Talent dance troupe is set to feature at a major Midlands event which helps professionals and families to support children and young adults with disabilities or additional needs.
Kidz to Adultz Middle, which will take place at Coventry Building Society Arena on Thursday, March 16, is set to feature a performance from Northamptonshire-based inclusive and accessible dance troupe Born to Perform.
The dance troupe received a Golden Buzzer from David Walliams in last year’s series of the hugely popular ITV talent show and will be performing the same dance on two occasions during the show, whilst also running an inclusive dance workshop for visitors.
Kidz to Adultz Middle is dedicated to professionals, parents, carers and families supporting children and young adults with disabilities and additional needs.
It will be the 13th time the show has been hosted at Coventry Building Society Arena and it is expected to attract more than 120 exhibitors and over 1,500 visitors for the 2023 show.
The exhibitors will be showcasing equipment and services for children and young people, and the show gives visitors the chance to test equipment and get information about funding, mobility products, seating, beds, communication, accessible vehicles, legal matters and more.
A comprehensive free programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPDaccredited seminars will also be held alongside the show, with topics set to including getting the right school placement for a young person, robotic rehabilitation training in a secondary school, using adaptations to reduce long term costs, toilet training and helping young people transition to adult services.
Kidz to Adultz Middle is organised by charity Disabled Living.
Carmel Hourigan, Senior Manager of the Kidz to Adultz team at Disabled Living, said: “There are thousands of young children with disabilities and additional needs across the Midlands, and the support offer is ever evolving.
“We are really excited to be welcoming Born to Perform to the show for this year. They wowed the country last year with their inspiring performance on Britain’s Got Talent and we’re all looking forward to watching their performances on the day.
“Our show is primarily for carers and healthcare professionals, but we do also urge families to join us on the day, as we know that raising a child with a disability or additional needs can be difficult. The show aims to help those families to find a life-changing piece of equipment and give expert guidance on how to manage particular conditions.
“It’s fantastic to be returning to Coventry Building Society Arena for the thirteenth time. We’ve seen consistent growth at the venue since launching here in 2009 and we’re looking forward to welcoming some familiar and new faces on March 16.”
Kidz to Adultz Middle continues to grow and expand at Coventry Building Society Arena, with the first show in 2009 attracting around 70 exhibitors, growing from 2,000 square metres to 4,000 square metres.
Paul Michael, Commercial Director at Coventry Building Society Arena, added: “Our dedicated team has worked closely with Kidz to Adultz for over a decade to facilitate the continued growth and development of the show.
“The event attracts visitors from all over the Midlands and further afield, and we’re proud to host an exhibition which provides such a vital service to people across the region.”
