November Workshops

Working with Queen's Theatre.

This November we have teamed up with our friends at Queens Theatre to bring you some amazing opportunities for the young and the young at heart to enjoy a series of workshops aimed at having fun, learning and self expression.

We have charged a small fee for these events in order to help raise much needed funds for our Kids Patch Clubs.

These are our Ofsted registered weekend clubs for children aged 5+ with disabilities or additional needs, they provide respite for parents, guardians or carers, and through fun activities help build social interaction, confidence and independence in these young people and can really help change their lives.
