Thanks to our grant from Scope, we can continue our FREE Creative Club sessions until the end of March 2024.
Local charity Groundswell Arts is also still on board to deliver these fun and interactive activities, along with some of their talented artist friends.
All sessions are crafted for children and young people aged 4 and above, with a primary movement disorder. (Depending on the session, younger is fine). Siblings welcome!
Here are the next batch of sessions, so please get booking sessions if you haven’t done so already, and spread the word to families who haven’t tried it yet.
Saturday 10th February – Morning 10.30am to 12.30pm or Afternoon 1.30pm to 3.30pm – Amazon Amy (Tiger Boat Theatre)
The performance will last approx. 45 minutes and will commence approx. 10.50am please arrive from 10.30 to allow time to be settled for the start of the show!
UH-OH! Amy’s plane has crashed – right in the middle of the Amazon Jungle!
Amy needs to find her beautiful golden propeller so she can fix her plan and rejoin the race – but where is it?!
Join us on our journey through the jungle, as we look for the lost golden propeller, and meet some of the curious creatures that call the Amazon home. A leafy, interactive adventure for the littlest of explorers, with Tiger Boat’s distinctive blend of storytelling, puppetry and live music. http://www.tigerboat.co.uk .

Saturday 9th March – 10.30am to 12.30am – Spring and Sushi
NB: For families when booking, please let us know if children have any food allergies or what they can/can’t safely eat we will try to offer some alternatives for trying things or sensory play.
Join Naoko Ishihara for this Japanese-inspired session. Spring is an important time of celebration in Japan synonymous with beautiful Cherry Blossoms and new beginnings. As our winter draws to a close why not come along to the creative club and try your hand at some Japanese crafts and perhaps some Japanese cooking including sushi rolling.
Saturday 23rd March – 10.30am to 12.30pm – Story Lab – Greenscreen Workshop
Groundswell Arts will lead the final Creative Club this term as a pop-up Story Lab. In this session, families will have the chance to make puppets and sets and use iPad filmmaking to create their own Green Screen Films. We then hope to be able to share and celebrate each other’s films at the end of the session. Bring on the popcorn! www.groundswellarts.com . Follow @groundswell_arts on Instagram
Have fun everyone!
