On Sunday 13 March, we will be running two creative:space events – a morning and afternoon session – at Henry Wood Hall in South London. creative:space is our interactive music event for children and young people with disabilities and their families. It enables disabled children and young people to benefit from accessing high-quality music performances in an informal, relaxed and welcoming environment.
Create’s band the Antonio Forcione Quartet and pianist Derek Paravicini (who is blind and is on the autistic spectrum) will perform, with opportunities for the audience to get involved. Interactive elements will include mask-making, singing, dancing, and playing percussion.
Date: Sunday 13 March
Venue: Henry Wood Hall, Trinity Church Square, London, SE1 4HU
Time: 11.45am – 1.00pm
Transport: Rail: London Bridge; Tube:Borough; Car: free parking.
Tickets: £4 children (£6 adults). Book by emailing email@example.com or send a cheque to Create, 379 Salisbury House, London Wall, EC2M 5QQ.
creative:space is designed for children with communication, learning or sensory integration difficulties (these include autism, asperger’s syndrome, dyspraxia, dyslexia, various speech/language disorders, down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD), their siblings and family members. There will be tables with paper, crayons and crafts materials, with free space at the front of the hall for children to dance and move around.
A parent who came to our last creative:space event said:
“It was great for my family to go to a stress-free event where my child’s behaviour would not be frowned upon or judged by anybody.”
