Hastings and Bexhill Mencap Artists

Get Started! with Active Arts

The return of the much loved Active Arts & Friends variety show marks a much needed boost for the spirits of the Hastings and Bexhill Mencap Artists, who after two years of Covid enforced cancellations are making a welcome return to the De La Warr Pavilion stage on the 6 July.

‘Get Started!’ is a positive affirmation of joy that marks the light at the end of a long tunnel, which many of Mencap’s artists felt might never come. For all of us these covid years have been hard, but for the Mencap users this has been a truly isolating time, with many enduring long periods of no contact with friends and tutors.

Happy Days!

So this year is a special one for Active Arts, a sign of normality and hope for Mencap users, students, staff, friends and families that they can once again celebrate their uniqueness and talent.

This year we are pleased to welcome on board our fabulous comperes, the amazingly talented Duo Bogof, winner of the ‘Best Alternative Act’ at The London Cabaret Awards. Duo Bogof have been wowing audiences with their completely original stage show combining magic, comedy, film, pathos and slapstick.
