Showcasing Ability over Disability
There has been little chance of getting out to enjoy a comedy show, music or dance during the Covid pandemic, so we thought it would be nice to get together and for YOU to showcase your talents!
Be it Poetry, music, dancing, comedy, magic or an art piece you would like to tell us about, we would love to see your talent!
This event is for adults so that people can have a drink & if the odd swear slips out we are not offending young ears.
This event takes place at 8pm UK time on Sat, if you are located in a different part of the world, please check what time it will be where you are so you can come along too :)

Socially distanced picnic
Lowther Castle-Cumbria have kindly allowed us to use their outer grounds for a socially distanced picnic. Refreshments & food is also available to buy from the grounds.
Why not join us, maybe even bring Teddy?
Lowther Castle & Gardens ask that there are no BBQ's, that we keep the grounds tidy and take away any rubbish with us. (which I'm sure we would all do anyway)
Lowther Castle Is a truly beautiful setting and we are thrilled to be allowed to have our little get together there. Lockdown has been long and hard with many of us shielding, it will be lovely to be able to breathe in the fresh air and say hello to one another at long last.
For anybody who would like to stay the whole day, Lowther castle has amazing grounds and a fabulous play area that you can pay to access. It is advised that people book on the website to avoid disappointment:
To get to Lowther Castle & Gardens from the A66, at Penrith, follow the A6 south for 3 miles and Follow the signs for Lowther Castle. SatNav-CA10 2HH
