What do I need to wear?
Please wear lose fitting, comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear (soft soled, dance shoes or plimsoll style shoes) as there will be movement and dance and other theatre techniques included in the 10 week programme.

What if I need support?
All carers/support workers will be invited to take part in the session, if your support worker chooses not to participate we ask that they sit outside the room or if they choose or have to be present within the workshop space we ask that they take an interested spectators role as opposed to reading a paper or not paying attention to what is happening in the session, this attitude can be very unhelpful and off putting to all the participants clients and carers alike.

What if I need to access disabled toilet facilities?
Unfortunately The Marlowe Lab doesn’t have disabled toilets, but The Marlowe is just a few minutes’ walk, where participants can access disabled facilities.
