Make friends, learn new skills and have fun

Drama classes and summer schools for learning disabled and/or neurodivergent young people (aged 14-19). 

Participants play drama games and devise performance pieces. They tell their own stories, in their own way. Past projects have included developing a podcast series and making a short film. The group have worked with filmmakers and spoken word artists.   

Practical information

  • We run three terms throughout the year. Classes take place on a Saturday morning 11am – 1pm.  
  • There is also a five-day course in the summer. 
  • Sessions currently take place at Impact Arts.  
  • The term costs 50p per session and is booked in advance. 
  • The classes are led by Morna McGeoch, Suzanne Brady and a team of other experienced participatory arts professionals. 

What our participants say

I enjoy playing games. I love how supporting and caring people are, and spending time with friends

I like seeing people with similar disabilities, so I am not alone.

If you are interested in joining the Saturday Citizens then email Morna. She will chat to you about the group, available facilities and access. We’d be really happy to hear from you and answer any questions that you have.
