Celebrations Theatrical Group is a Music and Theatre Group for Adults with learning disabilities who live in, or close to, the London Borough of Bexley. The group is entirely self-funded and all our helpers and workers are volunteers. Celebrations is a charitable organisation recognised by the HMRC. We are grateful to friends and supporters who have given generous donations.
The Group's aim is for members to develop their individual musical and theatrical talents and to be able express themselves through music, drama and dance performances. This is thanks to the financial support of friends and grants. We have been able to employ specialists with expertise to help with the development of skills. This has included drama skills and development, working with and making puppets, dance, development of music and other performance skills such as dance.
Additionally integration and inclusion are the key focus to the way Celebrations works. Our members are given the opportunity to perform on the live stage and other venues, to produce and present shows. Above all, members can meet friends, share their ideas and have fun and enjoyment!
The Group, lead by Julian Thornington, is based at the Carlton Day Centre in Sidcup, Bexley, Kent. Celebrations is open to anyone with learning disabilities, who can attend the weekly sessions. Any level of skill and abilities are warmly welcome . There is a weekly £2.00 refreshments fee. We are keen to welcome new members however, currently we are full but there is a waiting list to join for new members!
