A huge thank you to Milton Keynes Community Foundation for a recent grant which has enabled us to arrange for 10 of our members – 5 Service Users and 5 Volunteers to attend Milton Keynes Theatre. On Saturday, April 21st 2018, our happy little band attended a Touch Tour and Audio Described Performance of Northern Ballet’s The Little Mermaid. They met the dancers, joined in a workshop and were told the story of the ballet before being allowed to feel the costumes. The grant even enabled us to provide an interval ice-cream.
We have received some very heart-warming feedback:
“I am so grateful for such a wonderful afternoon from beginning to end……..It was quite emotional and I cried with happiness”;
“Great northern hospitality from the Northern Ballet. Such a lovely afternoon; I wouldn’t have missed it for the world”;
“An experience that will stay with me for ever. I have kept the programme as a souvenir. I can’t explain how much I enjoyed it”!
Hopefully, some photos will be available shortly. A huge thank you to Milton Keynes Theatre and the Northern Ballet Company for this wonderful opportunity.
