Over the last few years the Eastgate’s outreach co-ordinator has devised and delivered a series of innovative arts-based projects in the wider community collaborating with schools and different community groups. We regret that due to COVID 19 outreach projects are on hold.
Take Part classes have now opened up and are expanding. There is an extensive dance class programme – with Sara Boles for young people and adults and also with Dance Pointe Academy and Fiona Henderson School of Dance for children from pre-school.
Pre-schoolers can also take part in making music with Rhythm Kids and drama with Let’s Pretend. One of the new classes is Creative Combat Kids for everyone 8 – 12. At the other end of the age range are the recently added Health and Wellbeing classes for adults affected by Dementia or Parkinson’s.
The amazing Eastgate Community continues to contribute donations big and small to the Eastgate Open Door Campaign and every penny is gratefully received. In normal times The Eastgate depends on ticket and café sales for 70% of its income. As with most arts venues, it hasn’t been able to earn any income for many months. If you can help, please donate (maybe the price of a couple of classes or shows?) using the link….Thank you!
