- Relaxed Proms at Royal Albert Hall
We are very excited to announce the world’s first Relaxed Prom!
As part of the BBC Proms we are holding our first ever Relaxed Prom on Saturday 29 July 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall, featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
The BBC Relaxed Prom (Prom 19) will be open to everyone, but the concert will be specifically designed to welcome families who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment. This will be suitable for children and adults with autism, sensory and communication impairments and learning disabilities as well as individuals who are Deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted.
In this live concert the full forces of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales bring you popular classics and music from TV and film for all the family to enjoy. Presented by conductor Grant Llewellyn and musician Andy Pidcock, the Relaxed Prom is an interactive and fun experience of music in a welcoming environment. All tickets are just £6, plus booking fee.
The Prom will be on wider public sale on 12 May,

- Cambridge NAS Gardening Club
The National Garden Scheme has awarded a grant for a Gardening club to the Cambridge NAS. The Gardening Club will be in the garden at the Chitra Sethia Autism Centre in Fulbourne. We will use the grant money for a new Greenhouse and to help people get to the Austism Centre (by paying for bus fares etc.). The aim of the Club is to provide a relaxing opportunity to socialise, learn new skills and grow some veg.
Anyone interested in joining the Gardening Club can email us at:
