We’re launching a new drama group for adults living with disability labels!


Weekly sessions starting Wednesday 7th October 2020


In person at Gorse Hill Studios, Cavendish Rd, Stretford, Manchester M32 0PS.


Our new drama group (to be named by its participants) will invite adults living with disability labels and based in Trafford, to develop their careers over the course of a year. 

Members work with disability drama specialists to –

  • Learn new techniques in performance 
  • Express your voice 
  • Gain transferable skills 
  • Earn new qualifications (PEARL accreditation from GQAL) 
  • Develop your career 

This programme builds members who can express their views, raise awareness of disability, explore new creative outlets and become leaders.


We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our brand new performance group, meet new people, learn new skills and have fun.

Due to current circumstances we have been forced to reduce the number of participants we are able to work at this time.

We will be working with a group of 5 learners who, led by specialist workshop leaders, will meet weekly for 39 weeks to develop their drama skills. 

As lockdown restrictions are eased further we will be looking expand the group both in-person and online – you may be asked to be on our waiting list and invited to join later in the year.


Members need to be –

  • Over 18 years old
  • Based in the Trafford area
  • Living with disability label(s)
  • Not currently in employment


We like to keep things simple with a quick conversation, so please send us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can –
