Join us at the Belgrade for our fun weekly Arts Gymnasium sessions for over 50s, promoting positive well-being through imagination and movement.

These sessions are an opportunity to share stories, stay active and start new friendships by participating in a variety of theatre activities. No previous drama experience is necessary to take part.

The two groups we run are:

  • Drama activities and storytelling
  • Drama for early stage dementia

We also host the following groups:

Friendship group

During lockdown, The Friendship group are still able to meet at the Belgrade. They plan a variety of different fun activities to stimulate mind, body and well-being; from trips out to talks and sessions held in the theatre. Sessions are held every Thursday from 12pm until 1pm.

Play reading group

Before the first lockdown, a small group used to meet at the Belgrade and enjoy reading plays. They met on Monday afternoons from 2pm until 4pm.

Since March, a new play reading group has been organised on Zoom, and now takes place on Mondays from 6pm until 7:30pm. You can find more information about the Zoom play reading group here.

New members are always welcome, so please feel free to join in.
