Take Part: Programme

Take Part is the name of Eastgate’s programme for everyone who wants to do (rather than just see) arts, with a range of classes, courses and workshops for anyone aged from around two to around 92.

Beautiful arms - ballet class

The programme covers dance, drama, art, storytelling/puppetry, singing and music. Regular weekly classes run all year and there are additional events and courses during holidays.

Due to COVID 19 restrictions, Take Part classes and outreach projects can’t be re-started until the opening launch season. The Eastgate (and the tutors) intend to get them back up and running as soon as the situation is resolved.  This, as with all other parts of the Eastgate operation, will depend on raising enough funds – in part – through the Eastgate Open Door Campaign.  The Eastgate depends on ticket and café sales for 70% of its income and it hasn’t been able to earn any for several months this year.   If you can help, please donate (maybe the price of a couple of classes or shows?) using the link.

The Gallery shows images of just a few of the people who love being creative at the Eastgate.
