Come Together

Come Together is our the Big Lottery Fund: Reaching Communities project.

A central part of Come Together is our annual Come on Down festival.

Come On Down is our fantastic annual international festival of creativity & performance for learning disabled artists. Supported by Headway and hosted by Seven Stars Learning Disabled Theatre Company, it acts as a showcase for creative work across art forms. The event also offers a programme of workshops, performances and exhibitions of work from emerging and experienced disabled artists working regionally, nationally and internationally.

Come On Down offers learning disabled artists the chance to network, share ideas and develop friendships and opportunity to show their work to the wider community. If you would like to join the ‘Come Together’ network contact us or if you have an act or exhibition and/or would like to ‘Come On Down’ this year – we love to see you there…
