Drama Club Helping Children to Improve their English – Welcome to the UK

This week at Welcome to the UK (the charity that helps families from overseas integrate into our community), the children who have been attending our weekly drama workshop have been gearing up for their first ever Christmas performance. Run by the talented Elevator Arts, the children have been having a great time expressing themselves after school and it is always so lovely to see them let go, have fun and be themselves. The performance takes place in December for all the parents. It is so important because the children are practising their English and being creative has really built their confidence.

Our friendship group and free creche (that takes place every Friday from 1-2.30pm) has also been really busy and it warms our hearts to see new relationships forming and everyone supporting each other. We have had many new people join us recently and a number of them are Arabic speakers. So come and see us for tea, biscuits and a chat every Friday!
