Hello. ECL Drama is a group in Colchester where you can act and perform plays as well as sewing and making costumes and props for the productions.

About us

Through the use of music, dance and drama, we give disabled people the chance to learn social, communication, motor and life skills. Our aim is to enhance their lives, making them feel proud of their achievements and to gain self-confidence.

ECL Drama - Colchester helps to promote community inclusion, independence, sign language.

This is an ideal opportunity to learn to work as part of a team and build friendships. We aim to put on at least one full-scale production per year, which is open to the general public. We also participate in other events around Essex.

When And Where Is It On?

9:00am to 4:00pm Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays - excluding Bank Holidays. St Botolph's Church Hall, Colchester.

What Else Do We Do?

As part of ECL Drama, we run Crafty Sew & Sew, where participants can make costumes and props for our production, the ECL drama show, as well as other craft activities.
