Eight years ago Gary Nicholson was working as a joiner – then overnight spinal surgery saw him become unemployed, and permanently wheelchair bound. But Gary found a new direction in life – and now he is on the verge of graduating with a Masters degree in Design from the University of Sunderland. Next week he opens an exhibition of his work, Regeneration, based on his experiences of turning tragic illness into beautiful works of art. bit.ly/2hn8ccd ... See MoreSee Less
This looks like fun, I got from a friend!
Any musician friends/friends of friends...
I made a comment a while ago and a group of us have run with it so are now involved in the planning of a festival next year for people with learning disabilities, autism or both and families and friends so people can really experience the festival feeling and have a laugh.
we're looking for bands/singers/entertainers/ dancers/ caterers/ arts and crafts folk etc to perform and help us make this happen
We are going to host a taster event on 21st October to help us learn what we need to do for a much bigger event and also looking all kinds of entertainers etc to get involved for then too. That'll help us see what works and what doesn't.
If your interested in performing, helping, catering, volunteering, and all the other things we need please let me know costs etc...also if you have any videos post links so I can show the planning committee
The event 21 October will be taking place 12pm-9pm and we'll need entertainment all day (from a variety of acts) so let me know if you are available and what time(s)
The event next year is likely to be mid July, we want to make all the camping etc available for that too so people can really experience festivals.
Both will be held in Oswaldtwistle because we have been offered fabulous venues.
Please share and let me know if you can help.
THANK YOU ... See MoreSee Less
