Our performing arts group is a great place to express yourself through music and acting. The group is held every Friday where there is lots of laughter and fun.

We play drama games, write sketches which are acted out, write poetry, sing, do interactive quizzes, design art work for scenery and lots of other things.

Previously our students have performed a fantastic Cinderella pantomine, complete with a coach and a pink fairy. They also produced a highly entertaining show entitled "Nottingham Mencap's Got Talent".

This is a very popular group where students learn so many new skills. We have seen students who find it extremely difficult to communicate end up performing or singing on stage in front of an audience of over 100 people. The group builds confidence and communication skills and students develop their ideas and concepts in ways that build  self-esteem. We make the most of the very differing abilities and talents within the group with everybody making a contribution.
