Short Break Workshops 2019

Our Short Breaks workshop days for Children with Additional Needs continue to be extremely popular, and we have now set dates for all the holidays through to September 2019. These performing arts-based holiday workshops are for children up to 19, and are subsidised for children living in Essex County Council area (not Thurrock or Southend).

We provide a “buddy” for children that need it, to support them and help them get the most out of the day. Call us to book a consultation appointment so that we can assess your child’s need in order to differentiate and personalise the day to their requirements.

Summer Holiday Workshops

Although normal classes stop during the school holidays, PALS will continue as usual and we have Workshop running throughout… and there’s Carnival Week too of course!

Short-Break Workshops for children with additional needs are on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9.30am-2.30pm); and our regular Workshops on Mondays and Wednesdays (10am-3pm). See the images below for more details.

Carnival Week is 13-18 August, and we won’t be running the workshops days this week.

Summer Holiday Workshops

workshopsWe have an exciting fun-filled summer programme lined up this year, with Workshops every Tuesday and Thursday and Carnival Week 14-18 August.

As usual, the workshop days run from 10am to 3pm, and children should bring a packed lunch. The workshops are usually £15, but we have funding through Short Breaks for children who have additional needs ad a statement at school, reducing the cost for them to just £7. If you are uncertain about eligibility please contact us.

Carnival Week runs from Monday 14 August to Friday 18 August, 10am-3pm, and we then join the procession along Southend seafront on Saturday evening. The cost for the week is £80 (£10 deposit required ASAP). Short Breaks workshops will still run on the Tuesday and Thursday for those not doing the full week.

You’re the one that we want… at our Grease Workshop – 4 August

We’ve had a lot of people ask for a Workshop Day based on the hit musical Grease. You don’t have to be a beauty-school drop out or have tears on your pillow; but if you were born to hand-jive and think that love is a many splendoured thing – or you just want to come and have a fun-packed day with us (which is the preferred option) – then it might just be that we go together and you are the one that (we) want.

There are worse things (you) can do…

So, Freddy my love (insert your own name if not appropriate), give us a call on 01268 906470 for more information about our Grease Workshop on Thursday 4 August, 10am-3pm (it’s during the day so you are free to enjoy your summer nights) at Equal People Performing Arts in Brook Road, Rayleigh.

£15 per child. Packed lunch and drink required. No experience necessary. Hound dogs and mooning prohibited. Grease workshop organised by our very own rock and roll party queen, but Sandra Dee apologises she can’t be there in person as she has a prior engagement alone at a drive-in movie.

 

Disney Dance Party – Tues 2 Aug

Come and join us for our Disney Dance Party on Tuesday 2nd August at Equal People Performing Arts in Brook Road, Rayleigh. A fun afternoon, dancing to well known Disney tunes with prize games and activities, children can dress up as favourite character if they want, and we’ll have face painting available too.

The fun runs from 1pm to 4pm, for children aged from 5, and tickets are just £10.

Contact the MTC office on 01268 906470 for more information or to reserve your place.
