About

We believe in the talent and potential of people with learning disabilities

Under the Stars is an arts and events charity for people with learning disabilities. We believe in their talent. We believe in their creativity. We believe in them. Through our workshops and events, we work with our learners to unlock their potential and change lives.  

Why we are here

We empower and enable people with learning disabilities by developing their individual talent, skills, confidence and independence. Working closely with local artists, musicians, venues, schools, community groups and arts organisations, we give our learners opportunities to share their talents and connect with the community. We make sure that they are seen in places where people with a disability are often hidden.

Life-changing workshops

Under the Stars deliver music, dance and drama workshops. We’ve been doing it since 2010, and every week, more than 100 people join us for high-quality activities designed to help them flourish.

Our nightclub

Under the Stars puts on a ‘proper’ nightclub for people with learning disabilities six times a year at the iconic Leadmill. Our club night is where our work began, and we’ve been running club nights for over 10 years.

Our Mission

We use the power of the performing arts to champion people with learning disabilities

 

Our Vision

To empower people with a learning disability to live full, independent, creative and meaningful lives

We want people with a learning disability to feel proud of who they are and what they can achieve
