  • Free art sessions

    • This course has started, but due to cancellations we have additional spaces available.

      We have teamed up with Ignite Imaginations to offer free art sessions for disabled children aged 7-12 years. Sessions will run throughout June on Wednesday afternoons (5-6pm).

      Remaining dates: 16, 23 and 30 June

      The sessions will be led by an artist with experience of working with children with additional needs. Each session will focus on a different art/craft form. Families will need to commit to attending all sessions, and parents must wear facemasks and stay throughout the session. Non-disabled siblings can attend and take part if necessary. Please note, the venue has stairs and is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. Please click on the Book now button to book for all sessions.

  • Taster session: choir singing

    • This is part of a series of taster sessions for stress-busting activities for parent carers, funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

      Singing is a lovely way of connecting with other people, and can help to relieve stress – but joining an existing choir can seem daunting. This session is aimed at parents who would like to give singing a go but lack confidence. You’ll meet Liz Nicholas, who runs the Council and Carers Choir, and hopefully also some of its members.

      It helps if you can book to let us know you’re coming – but you can also just turn up!
