ECL Drama (Crafty Drama) is a performing arts group that aims to enhance the lives of people with learning disabilities and/or autism, helping them to gain independence, confidence, and self esteem.
ECL Drama is a popular performing arts group who were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the People's Category of The Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards 2022, for making a difference to the lives of the customers they support.
We are an entirely inclusive drama group who gives adults with learning disabilities the chance to learn social, communication, motor, and life skills through the use of sign language, music, dance, and drama.
Performing arts doesn't mean that everyone has to be on stage, for individuals who prefer to be creative behind the scenes there are plenty of opportunities to make costumes, build sets, and create props.
The drama group is based at St Botolph's church in Colchester from Monday to Thursday, and on a Friday they join the activities at the day centre at ECL Colchester - Woodlands. You can find out more here: ECL Colchester - Woodlands Day Centre
