about us

our mission

To use the power of creativity and the performing arts to enhance the lives of people with learning disabilities and /

or autism


our vision

That people with learning disabilities and /or autism have the chance to shine and live creative, rich and meaningful lives

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.
