Summer Arts Extravaganza
This year’s project took place on Fridays in July and August. A group of 30 adults with learning disabilities from Mencap Llanfyllin, Cae Melyn, Rhoslyn, Leighton day base and Vyrnwy Academy enjoyed workshops in music with Niall Evans, dance with Ray Jacobs of Blue Eyed Soul and making percussion instruments with Ingrid Maugham. Suzanne Brady joined us on the final day to create a backdrop and everybody enjoyed celebrating the achievements of the project. Thanks to our enablers Karen Gomm, Louise Weekes, Kath Morrell and Sally Pinder.
The project this year was supported by partnership funding from Mencap Llanfyllin.
Autumn Arts Extravaganza
Two days were spent at Theatr Clera in Welshpool with 35 adults with learning disabilities working on dance with Helen McGreary, drama with Ginny Graham, DJ-ing with Pete Beresford and large-scale stage decorations with Ingrid Maugham. The project was based on the theme of ‘a good night out’ and there was a performance and disco for an invited audience on the second day. We were assisted by volunteers from Montgomeryshire Youth Theatre.
