Komedia to host learning disabilities club night

Bosses at Bath’s Komedia have said they are “proud and excited” to be hosting the city’s first ever club night for adults with learning disabilities.

The night – named Uproar! – will be held in association with Bath Mencap on 16 April, and will be a regular event.

It aims to offer a safe, relaxed and fun environment for adults with learning disabilities and their families and friends.

A spokesperson for the entertainment venue said that Bath DJ Luke Baker will be providing the tunes, which will be a classic and contemporary mix of pop and dance hits.

Komedia are providing training for their staff as well as extra security on the door to ensure the nights are relaxed and safe.

 

Caroline White, the new chair of Bath Mencap, said the event is an exciting step for Bath Mencap’s typical users.

She added: “Just like anyone, adults with learning difficulties enjoy socialising, music and dancing, and we wanted to offer an event at a great venue – not just a half-hearted offering in a small hall.

“Adults with learning difficulties can find events open to the general public intimidating or overwhelming so we wanted to create an event where they feel safe and relaxed.

“We also wanted the event to be open to our clients families – and we hope that it means everyone will have a great night out together.”

Uproar! will be a regular event at Komedia and dates are as follows:

  • Monday 16 April 2018
  • Monday 13 August 2018
  • Monday 19 November 2018
  • Monday 18 February 2019
