Reconnecting adults with learning disabilities with outdoor events

The Alley Theatre is delighted to be hosting a number of outdoor events for adults with learning disabilities and their carers as part of ‘Reconnect’, organised in partnership by The Western Health and Social Care Trust, Public Health Agency, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Derry and Strabane District Council and Causeway Coast and Glens District Councils supported by the Public Health Agency.

Events take place on Thursday, August 26 from 6-8pm and on Saturday, September 11 from 1- 3pm and will be held in the Alley Theatre Courtyard, keeping safety and social distancing measures as a priority in line with health guidance.

Participants can enjoy a range of activities including, the ever popular ‘Energy of Light Disco’ hosted by DJ Oliver, pop up performances, drama, music and much more. Plus there will be light healthy refreshments at each event.

Louise Boyce, venue manager explained, “The Alley is really delighted to be part of the ‘Reconnect Summer Programme’

This is a fantastic initiative to reconnect our adults with learning disabilities and carers in a fun, safe and interactive environment.

“I have no doubt events such as these will have a major impact on improving health, physical and social wellbeing.

“This is one of the first live events the Alley Theatre will hold since reopening again after Covid19 ease of restrictions and our team really can’t wait to see audiences reconnect and have fun beside Ambrose in the Alley Courtyard.”

As per Government Guidelines we will have safety measures in place and numbers are restricted due to social distancing. This is a free event but booking is essential.
