Glasgow Southside - new drama group


The Occasion are starting an exciting, new, weekly drama group in Glasgow.

Open to everyone aged 16+ the group will particularly welcome adults with learning difficulties.

No previous drama experience is necessary! Just a desire to have fun, create, play, explore and meet new people. The sessions will start on Thursday 20th February and run, weekly, until Easter.

The first session is free so come along, try it out and see if this is for you. After that there’ll be a £5 charge per week. There are limited numbers for this group so let us know if you’d like to book a place by emailing info@theoccasiontheatre.com

Where: Queen’s Park Bowling Club, 381 Langside Road G42 8DA
When: Thursdays (from February 20th)
Time: 6.30 to 8.00pm




The Occasion is a Glasgow based theatre company renowned for its international touring and community work. The company is dedicated to building bridges across all sectors of society and to working on a fully inclusive basis.

I have never participated in a workshop that felt as inclusive, welcoming and creative as these sessions. I really hope that funders appreciate the impact that this opportunity would have on participants, as well as the example of good practice it would set for audiences and other arts practitioners.

It was fantastic – my confidence has improved and it’s been great to work with so many different people; older people, young, disabled/less-abled (chances like this are very few!) to create drama together.

Theatre as it should be – a communal, passionate, imaginative celebration of life in all its facets.
